LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Snow and ice caused problems for drivers around Lexington Thursday night.
Lexington Police reported 34 crashes between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. throughout the city. So police are encouraging drivers to take it slow and drive cautiously while getting out Thursday night into the early morning hours.
The road conditions will only deteriorate from here even though Lexington streets and road crews are out and about putting down salt.
Police were also called to a water main break on South Limestone Thursday night. At one point, water gushed onto the street. Kentucky American Water crews were called out to fix the problem. They say no customers lost service because of the water main break.
As temperatures drop, it causes issues for not only drivers, but for the homeless community of Lexington as well. The Catholic Action Center needs donations especially with temperatures expected to drop to zero by Monday.
Ginny Ramsey of the Catholic Action Center says, "We are needing more coats, more blankets particularly because in this cold weather, we need anything we can get to keep our folks warm. Particularly like long underwear, but coats number one, blankets number two and anything else that can keep our brothers and sisters warm."
