|Evansville flights disrupted following Atlanta outageWIKY / 32 min. ago more|
Power has now been restored to most of the Atlanta airport following an outage. One of the heaviest travel weeks of the year began with the cancellation of hundreds of flights on Sunday at the world's busiest airport, as passengers were stranded in darkened terminals or in aircraft idling on tarmacs. Delta Airlines said it was cancelling about 300 flights on Monday, on top of the 900 Sunday cancellations as a result of the Atlanta outage. Both flights into Evansville were canceled, as was one flight from Evansville to Atlanta. According to Delta's web site, Flight 2286, scheduled to leave Evansville at 6:00am Monday for Atlanta has been canceled. Two later flights to Atlanta, and all three Monday flights from Atlanta to Evansville are listed as "on time." Delta said it was cancelling about 300 flights on Monday, on top of the 900 Sunday cancellations as a result of the Atlanta outage. United Air Lines also warned on social media that travel on Monday may be affected. United's only Evansville flights go to and from Chicago. A check of the United web site shows no disruption to those flights. In addition to the Evansville cancelations, four flights from Louisville to Atlanta were canceled, as were four from St. Louis. Six flights from Atlanta into Louisville, and five into St. Louis also were canceled. The early afternoon outage paralyzed operations at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport through Sunday evening. Even though power was finally restored at close to midnight Sunday, the incident continued to wreak havoc on holiday travel plans for thousands of people hit by airline cancellations extending into Monday. The airport announced on its Twitter page minutes after midnight, "Power has been restored on all concourses. 5,000+ meals are being delivered to passengers. Trains will be operational soon." Georgia Power said in a statement that a fire caused extensive damage in an underground electrical facility, impacting substations serving the airport. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

|At least 13 coyotes caught in HendersonWIKY / 3 d. 15 h. 3 min. ago more|
An effort to trap coyotes near two Henderson subdivisions has proven successful. “In the last four days, we’ve taken 13 coyotes,” said John Zahn of Wildlife Animal Control. They’ve been trapping in the fields and woodlands surrounding the Balmoral and Pebble Creek subdivisions. “We are definitely thankful to the landowners for working with us and letting us on their properties,” Zahn added. The trapping followed the killing of a family pet by a coyote and the recent deaths of two other dogs. "For now, anyway, with the numbers we've taken out, they are definitely going to be safer," Zahn added. "Eventually, coyotes will probably start wandering back through. You're always going to have a few. But I think we've definitely put a big dent in it for sure." He offered this advice for neighbors. "Anytime your pets are outside, even to go to the bathroom, make sure you're with them and they are on a leash," Zahn said. The trapping effort will continue through Friday.
|Postal Service braces for holiday rushWIKY / 3 d. 15 h. 19 min. ago more|
It's the busiest time of year for the U.S. Postal Service. “December 18-24 is actually what we call Peak Week,” explained Alisa Zanetti, Marketing Manager. “We no longer have Peak Day. We are expecting 200 million packages to go through the Postal Service, this week and next week alone.” As a whole, traffic is up 10 percent over last year. But Zanetti said Evansville has seen a surge above the national average. Some important dates to remember for shipping: December 14-USPS Retail Ground December 19-First Class Mail December 20-Priority Mail December 22-Priority Mail Express On Sunday, the Lawndale Post Office will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. “That is so you can avoid the long lines on Monday,” Zanetti said. “We want to add that little bit of convenience for customers in the Evansville area.” She offered a few packing tips for customers. “Do not reuse a box,” Zanetti said. “They weaken during shipping. Also, make sure you use extra padding and take the glass out of picture frames.” It's also a good idea to put a slip of paper in the package with the recipient's name and address. That way if the shipping label becomes detached, the Postal Service can still deliver the package to its rightful destination.
|ISP: Airplanes used to catch speedersWIKY / 3 d. 18 h. 20 min. ago more|
If you travel U.S. 41 between Evansville and Terre Haute, watch your speed. Indiana State Police say the corridor is one of the targets for airplane radar. Sgt. Joe Watts explained the process. “A computer system in the plane clocks the speed,” Sgt. Watts said. “He then radios down to where the troopers on the ground are staged. The pilot then follows the trooper to make sure the trooper gets the correct car.” Watts said the strategy has been around since the 1960s but was rarely used until recently. In the last five weeks, troopers have issued over 100 speeding tickets along with 150 warnings. Watts talked about the reaction of drivers, when they find out how they were caught. "They take an aircraft detail much better than they do moving radar," Sgt. Watts said. “You know I think they're just intrigued we're using aircraft. It's something out of the norm." Network Indiana contributed to this story.

|Consul-General of Japan visits southwest IndianaWIKY / 4 d. 18 h. 4 min. ago more|
The Consul-General of Japan sees great potential for further investment in the region. He just wrapped up a grassroots tour of southwest Indiana, with stops in Evansville and Princeton. Naoki Ito spoke to reporters Tuesday at the Toyota plant. “We have been visiting southwest Indiana and southern Illinois to reach out to the local business community, so there will be an increasing awareness and understanding of what Japanese companies have been doing and also to seek the further possibility of developing two-way business partnerships,” he said. Ito said he learned a great deal about the area. “Where this region is heading in terms of the economy and what sort of potential it has for development,” he added. At the moment, there are six Japanese companies, providing 130 jobs in Evansville, while Princeton has 13 companies and 8,000 jobs. “The number of jobs provided by Japanese companies has increased 30 percent over the last five years,” Ito said. The Consul-General mentioned that Indiana is the only state in the U.S. with plants for three Japanese auto manufacturers. “Subaru came first, Toyota was second followed by Honda,” Ito said. Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana (TMMI) celebrated its 20th anniversary earlier this year. Plant President Millie Marshall said it was an honor to host the Consul-General. “This is his first visit to any Toyota Motor Manufacturing company in all of North America,” she said. “It was truly an honor and treasure to have him visit our site here today.” Marshall said that Ito is very familiar with Toyota. He was impressed to see one of only two looms outside Japan at the plant. “He was here mainly to build partnerships with the community, and to share the culture between Japan and southwest Indiana,” Marshall added. The visit came as TMMI is preparing for a major expansion of its Highlander production. The investment will lead to 400 additional jobs. The Consul-General represents the Japanese government in the Midwest. Ito said he is based in Chicago and his office covers 10 states. His role is to promote economic relationships, cultural relations and ties between sister cities.
|I-69 ORX project team making progressWIKY / 4 d. 18 h. 46 min. ago more|
Indiana and Kentucky are marking a year of progress on the I-69 Ohio River Crossing. The project team is preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Statement, which is required for large, federally-funded projects. About 20 different studies are underway now. Officials say the studies are extensive and include wetland and habitat surveys, historic property reviews, an evaluation of the existing U.S. 41 bridges and traffic modeling. “A tremendous amount of information has already been gathered, but there is still a lot work to do,” said Janelle Lemon, Indiana Department of Transportation project manager. “We want to make sure we’re doing our due diligence. The Project Team is gathering the detailed information that will be used by leaders in both states to identify a cost-effective solution to complete this important I-69 connection between Evansville and Henderson.” The project team is developing alternatives for each corridor. Detailed alternatives will include bridge configuration, right of way limits, range of impacts, expected costs and possible funding options. The information is expected to be released in early 2018, with the next round of open houses likely in February. “This is when we will have much more detailed information to offer the public,” said Marshall Carrier, Kentucky Transportation Cabinet project manager. “Although the information will be preliminary and could possibly change, we’ll be able to sit down with residents and business owners and tell them whether their property might be affected by a particular alternative. We’ll also have more details regarding costs. Affordability will help drive this project forward.” A preferred alternative is expected to be identified by next fall. After the Draft Environmental Impact Statement is published, public hearings will be held in both Evansville and Henderson. The Final Environmental Impact Statement and Record of Decision are expected by fall 2019. The Record of Decision allows the states, with the help of available federal funds, to move forward with design, land purchases and construction. Simulation Experience Recently, the project team participated in a modeling project at The Seamen’s Church Institute in Paducah. The interactive simulation experience was done in collaboration with the U.S. Coast Guard. Active barge captains familiar with this stretch of the river used computer simulators to analyze the effect of different bridge locations and span arrangements on navigation, ensuring any new bridge will allow for the safe flow of commerce.
