10,000 Without Power After Snow

The number of Eastern Kentuckians without power continued to shrink Tuesday, as Kentucky Power worked to resolve the outages. As of 9 p.m. Tuesday, nearly 10,700 Kentucky Power customers did not have electricity, down from a peak of about 34,000 who had been left in the dark Monday afternoon. A weekend snow storm dumped six to eight inches on parts of southeastern Kentucky, causing downed power lines and fallen tree limbs.
