Ice knocks out power, causes damage in Madison Co.

MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - "She went out, and that's what she found. She was pretty upset about it," said one woman, referencing her roommates car that was smashed by an ice-laden tree branch.

The woman lives on Summit Street, that boarders Eastern Kentucky University's campus in Richmond.

All along their street limbs still coated with ice littered the sidewalk and roadway. It was a familiar sight all around the county.

And even though some of it melted away, and found it's way into the swelling Kentucky River, much of the ice remained.

Madison County Emergency Management officials say they didn't have too many calls of property damage as a result of the storm, and add power outages and limbs in the roadway were the biggest issues.

On man stopped by to tell our WKYT crew that the power was still out along his road in northern Madison County, and that it had been out since ten last night.
