UPDATE: The boil advisory for Madisonville, Kentucky has been lifted.

Multiple tests conducted throughout the city have come back negative.


City leaders said Wednesday that the boil advisory was being issued as a precautionary measure after total coliform and E. coli had been found in the water supply.

According to the city, a water sample that tested positive for bacteria was taken from the Homewood subdivision area. While one positive sample of bacteria was identified in the area, two other samples taken from the same area tested negative, but the city-wide boil advisory was issued for 24 hours as a precautionary measure.

A statement from the City of Madisonville Water Distribution Department instructs everyone in the city to boil any water that's going to be consumed for at least one minute before use, or to use bottled water as an alternative.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
