Episode Narrative A major winter storm affected Eastern Kentucky beginning on January 27th. A low pressure system moved northeast from the Gulf Coast States, reaching Eastern Kentucky by the morning of the 28th. Snow, sleet, and freezing rain overspread the area during the early morning hours on the 27th. The precipitation gradually changed to all freezing rain, with some plain rain closer to the Tennessee border. By the morning of the 28th, numerous trees and power lines were brought down due to the weight of the ice from freezing rain. An estimated 100,000 people were without power. Some were without power for more than a week. Communications systems were affected, with both land line and cellular service inoperative. FEMA estimated that over $13 million in damage occurred as a result of the ice storm in eastern Kentucky alone. Estill, Johnson, Magoffin, and Morgan counties all received over $1 million dollars in federal aid respectively to help with recovery and cleanup.
Event Narrative Five inches of snow and sleet accumulated in Flemingsburg.
