I considered, a few minutes ago, trying to dig my car out and take a little spin. My better judgment says no. I just watched a Courier-Journal house-call delivery car spin and squawk its way up the low-grade hill in front of my house. No thanks.
Mayor Abramson’s office just issued a press release saying there are 75,000+ without power in Louisville, some 2,500 power lines are down, and around 300 LG&E crews are out there trying to get the grid back in order.
The neighborhoods most impacted by power loses are Shively, Kenwood, Fairdale, South Park, Okolona, the Highlands, St. Matthews and Crescent Hill. The American Red Cross has opened its shelter at 531 E. Chestnut and will open other shelters across the city as needed. People who need shelter should call the Red Cross at 589-4450.
