Laurel County, Ky. - Sheriff John Root is reporting that all Laurel County Roads including I-75, U.S. 25, Ky 80, & Ky 30 are slick and hazardous. All secondary roads are extremely slick and hazardous. 2 more inches of snow has fallen this morning, making already slick roads dangerous to travel.

Many secondary roads remain impassable. Salt trucks and snow plows are out and have plowed major roads, and many county roads, however, most roads are still snow and ice covered, and very slick and hazardous. Sheriff Root reminds drivers--

Driving should be limited to emergencies only. Numerous traffic crashes have occurred. Many vehicles , even front wheel drive, have lost traction in the deep snow and have gotten stuck. All roads are snow and ice covered. Many roads are impassable. Deputies will be out in full force to assist on any traffic problems. More updates later today.
