A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
A 21 year old man was working with an electrical contracting company at the Marriott Griffen Gate hotel in Lexington when he was injured shortly after nine this morning.
He apparently reached into a hole in the wall where he was working and was shocked.
The fire department said that when he was shocked he fell and hit his mouth on the floor, suffering an injury to his face.
The man's condition and name aren't being released at this time.
Marci Krueger, the Director of Sales and Marketing at the Marriott confirmed the accident, but said the hotel couldn't comment because no one was present when the accident happened.
The State Fire Marshals office have been called in to investigate.
