BREAKING NEWS on the Ice Storm

BREAKING NEWS OUT OF LYON CO. : A large brush fire is headed to a residential area calling in the fire departments of Eddyville and Kuttawa. Lyon Co. is still 100% with NO power, many still without water. Residents in need are being fed at the local school daily. Showers and supplies have still not arrived from federal agencies.

WPSD's website has been down all day so we have been unable to gain updates on counties' progress. Paducah, Murray and Benton are all progressing at last word but still have several thousand residents without power. Lyon, Crittenden, Caldwell, Livingston counties are amongst those hardest hit and still have thousands of residents without power and many without water. Some counties are being told to expect to be out of power for at least another month.
