Hurricane Sandy brings eastern Kentucky the threat of measurable snowfall for the first time this season.
This potential snow comes about 2 weeks earlier than the average first snowfall.
While eastern Kentucky is under the gun this time around, Emergency Management officials say this event should serve as a reminder for everyone to have their winter weather disaster kit ready to go.
This kit should include a NOAA weather radio, a flashlight, extra batteries, a change of clothes, and a first aid kit.
John Bobel, with the Lexington Emergency Management, says you should also have an evacuation plan and an emergency contact.
For more information on items to have in your kit, visit Kentucky's Emergency Management.
