More than 1,000 without power in Estill County after Monday snow storm

By  | 

ESTILL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - More than 1,000 customers are still without power in Estill County thanks to Monday's snow storm, which dropped 8-10 inches of snow in some areas.

The heavy snow brought down trees and power-lines in several areas, at one point knocking out power to nearly half of all homes and businesses in the county.

While crews work to restore power in the region, officials want residents to check on friends and family, especially the elderly.

Extra workers are coming in from Ohio to help get power restored faster. Officials hope that work will be done by Wednesday.
