HAZARD, Ky. -- Utility crews are working to restore power in eastern Kentucky after a storm dumped as much as a half-foot of snow in some areas.
Kentucky Power says more than 30,000 customers lost electricity. The company says it may be Thursday before all power is restored.
Perry County emergency management officials say 6-to-8 inches of snow was on the ground this morning. The heavy, wet snow brought down trees and power lines. Schools were cancelled.
As much as five inches of snow fell in Pike County. The snow was falling so fast that county crews struggled to keep the roads clear.
