Beshear declares state of emergency


Gov. Steve Beshear has declared a state of emergency for the second time in less than a month after more than 20 inches of snow fell overnight in some parts of the state. The declaration authorizes the National Guard to help with relief efforts and empowers state officials to close roads in the interest of public safety. A full day of rain on Wednesday meant it was impossible for road crews to prepare roads in advance of the snowfall. Beshear urges Kentuckians to not travel if possible and to check in on elderly neighbors. (Lexington Herald-Leader; Updated: 8:57 am, Thursday)

Update on area road conditions

Deep snow has closed long stretches of I-24 from Marshall County to the Tennessee state line. National Weather Service reports include a foot in Paducah, 15 inches in Benton and Golden Pond an 16 in Mayfield. Some spotters report drifts as high as 32 inches. Road crews are out in force across Kentucky to clear roads covered by thick snow from the latest winter storm to hit the state. State Transportation Cabinet spokesman Chuck Wolfe says the snow is so thick that some snow plows have gotten stuck or blocked by stranded vehicles. Wolfe said that the snow fell so fast that roads had fresh blankets of snow on them soon after being plowed. Some roads were blocked by tractor-trailers that jackknifed due to the slick conditions. Wolfe says the main priorities are the interstate highways, parkways and other major routes. (Updated: 8:59 am, Thursday)
