Freezing rain, ice leave thousands without power

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Freezing rain and ice that moved through Kentucky overnight have left thousands of people without power.

According to the Public Service Commission, most of the outages were reported in Jefferson County, which had about 10,000 people without power early Wednesday.

The National Weather Service reported the winter storm that hit Tuesday evening left about a quarter-inch of ice over much of the central and northern regions of the state.

The weather led several schools systems to cancel classes Wednesday.

Meanwhile, state transportation officials in northeastern Kentucky warned that motorists should watch for downed tree limbs and power lines as well as high water and mud slides.
