Public Information Statement
National Weather Service Paducah, KY
1228 PM CDT Wed May 22 2019


For the citizens and partners of the National Weather Service in
Paducah Kentucky, we have been experiencing some telecommunication
interruptions since the middle of this morning.

Technicians were notified and are working on this issue.

In the meantime, there could be intermittent periods when data
and information from the National Weather Service in Paducah
Kentucky is delayed in transmission.

Critical data, including radar and observational data, are still being
transmitted to the pubic through backup systems. These systems
are specifically designed to provide warning, data, and forecast
products and services to the public in the event of unexpected
interruptions from scheduled communication networks.

Given the volume of data transmitted to the public through the
backup systems, there maybe slight delays in the public
receiving products.

Please know that the highest priority is given to those products
and services that impact public safety.

We hope to have regular communications restored soon.

In the meantime, we ask for your patience and understanding while
we work to resolve communication issues.
