Significant snowfall across the state could result in power outages in communities east to west in the Commonwealth. Kentucky Public Service Commission spokesman Andrew Melnykovych says it may not be nearly as critical as when there is major ice accumulation, but power interruption is still possible. "Particularly if you are looking at situations where you've got like conifer type trees, pines and what not collect a lot of snow on their branches,” he said. “Certainly that’s potential for bringing some branches down on power lines and having some outages."
