Many remain without power in area

ASHLAND — More than 8,000 customers in Boyd, Carter and Greenup counties remain without power, according to Kentucky AEP's website.

Tuesday night's storm that wrecked havoc on the area has taken down numerous trees and power lines. The brunt of the storm hit about 8 p.m. and area dispatchers were overwhelmed with calls.

Several roads in all three counties are closed because of the debris.

A boil water advisory was issued for Providence Hill because of a power failure at the pump station.

The northbound lanes between Lexington Avenue and Montgomery Avenue are closed because of a tree blocking the road.

In Greenup County, Pond Run Road from Dillow Avenue to Bellefonte Road is closed because of downed trees and power lines. Also, Green Acres Drive in Raceland is closed from Linda Lane to Pond Run Road because of power line issues.

The Ashland Fire Department responded to a call on Carr Street in Ashland. Firefighters kicked in the basement door. The house had smoke and water damage in the basement. The homeowners were able to leave safely.
