Gov. Beshear: Kentuckians Need to Monitor Weather Reports, Exercise Caution

Gov. Steve Beshear


State highway crews will be out in force

“The National Weather Service is forecasting a major winter storm in Kentucky, beginning late tonight and continuing Monday and into Tuesday, with projected accumulations of a foot or more of snow in many places.

Kentuckians need to exercise care for their safety. I encourage all Kentuckians to stay on top of weather reports this evening and be prepared for extreme conditions tomorrow.

That preparation would include keeping travel to a minimum and staying off the road entirely if possible. Our highway crews will be out in force but are likely to be hard-pressed just to keep interstates and other high priority routes cleared.

Frigid temperatures, combined with the risk of becoming stuck in snow, will make for a potentially dangerous situation for travelers. Our first priority must be safety.” – Gov. Steve Beshear.
