Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky: (LEX 18) – Kentucky Emergency Management will activate its State Emergency Operations Center at 5:00 pm EST, at a Level 4, which consists of KYEM personnel monitoring the weather system.

Officials urge citizens to stay tuned to their local media for watches and warnings.  This storm has the potential of dropping heavy rain, sleet, ice and snow, depending on which area of Kentucky you reside.

Roadway conditions will be hazardous.  Citizens should stay off roadways unless necessary.  Black ice and icing on overpasses will occur, causing hazardous driving conditions.  Reduce your speed, give yourself extra time, and check road conditions before you leave and for your destination at www.snowky.ky.gov.

Icing is projected with this storm, which could cause minor power outages.  If you lose power, have an alternate source ready.  However, be aware of the dangers of alternate heat sources and carbon monoxide poisoning.  Visit http://www.cdc.gov/co/guidelines.htm for more information.

If you experience a power outage, please contact your local utility company.  They will be able to provide you with information on the duration of your outage.

Heavy rain with this storm is also expected across portions of the west, south and east-central Kentucky, causing flooding in low water crossings and low-lying areas.  Be aware of your surroundings and never cross flooded waters – Turn Around – Don't Drown!
