The cold front is now working into eastern Kentucky with winds gusting to near 40mph at times. Temps have dropped into the 30s behind the front and we've had reports of sleet and snow mixing with the rain in Lexington.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Some landowners who suffered extensive
damage from the 2009 ice storm that struck Kentucky are eligible
for help from the Kentucky Division of Forestry.
The Division of Forestry, through a grant from the U.S. Forest
Service, has made contractors available to help private forest
landowners in central and western Kentucky. The contractors, at no
cost, can develop management plans for the wooded areas.
The effort is a partnership between the Division of Forestry,
the Division of Conservation and local conservation districts.
Private forest landowners seeking advice on managing their
woodlands are asked to contact the Division of Forestry office that
serves their area.
