Kentucky Utilities are bringing in extra crews to help with the storm.

Officials tell us they have asked for up to 500 people coming Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.

They said this is something they didn’t do before the ice storms in 2003 and 2009.

According to KU, power lines can hold up to an inch or so of ice. They said the bigger threat is tree limbs falling on those lines.
