A few thousand Central and Northern Kentuckians remained without power Sunday night after a winter storm Friday and Saturday.
As of 9 p.m. Sunday night, Nicholasville-based Bluegrass Energy reported 2,800 customers without power in several counties including Harrison, Scott, Grant, Pendleton and Bracken in a post on its website, bgenergy.com. The company told WLEX-TV that a shelter had been opened at Cynthiana Christian Church.
The Bluegrass Energy post said crews were working to restore power for customers Sunday night, and the company hoped to have most customers restored by 8 p.m. Monday.
That will be just in time for a new round of winter weather. Meteorologist Chris Bailey is calling for more snow to roll into the region Monday evening and hang on into New Year's Day, Tuesday. Follow Bailey's updates at his blog, Kentucky Weather.
