National Weather Service: Falling ice can be hazardous

-A A +A
By The Staff

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for several counties in Kentucky, including Marion County. As temperatures rise and ice melts on trees, limbs and power lines, falling ice has the potential to create a hazardous situation. This may mean large pieces of ice will fall to the ground. At the same time, the ice falling off power lines and trees may result in power lines springing back quickly. Anyone working outdoors should be aware that can be a serious hazard. Use caution, especially if working around or under buildings, power lines and trees.

The following is the National Weather Service forecast through Friday:
