Snowstorm Slams E. Ky.; Gov. Declares Emergency

A state of emergency continues for counties in eastern and central Kentucky hard hit by heavy snow Saturday.Governor Steve Beshear issued the declaration after a winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow in some areas and left more than 100,000 without electricity.Beshear is scheduled to tour some of the harder hit areas today, with stops scheduled in Pike and Letcher counties.The Louisville area and much of western Kentucky escaped the winter weather, as temperatures remained warm enough to limit the precipitation to rain.Road conditions throughout the state can be found on the Kentucky Department of Transportation’s Web site, or by calling 511 in Kentucky or 1-866-737-3767 for out-of-state callers
