Residents Without Power, Road Reopens

Posted: Updated:

WOODFORD COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- A road in Versailles has reopened after it was closed for around 12 hours.

US 60 at Steele Road was shut down a little before 6 p.m. on Sunday and reopened around 6:20 a.m. on Monday.

Officials say a tree fell and knocked down power lines, blocking four lanes on the road.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet reported some cars got entangled in those lines.

Kentucky Utilities says more than 800 people are currently without power. They estimate power to be back up and running by 8 a.m. Monday.

    (NASA)-- Most of the ‘beauty shots’ you will see related to this eclipse will be taken with professional digital cameras on tripods, or shot through a telescope, but the most common photos you will probably see will be taken by the millions of smartphones used by ordinary people to capture this event. These will generally not look very good with the typical smartphone system, but with a bit of preparation, you will be able to create some stunning pictures!

Can I just look at the eclipse for just a second as it's happening? Unless you are in the path of totality...no.No. No. No. You can seriously damage your eyesight....
