Mayor Jim Gray said in a press conference today that Lexington is ready for the looming ice storm, with extra crews on standby. The inclement weather has also caused city to announce a two-hour delay for its government offices on Monday.

Lexington currently has 3,800 tons of salt to be used on the roadways, with over 1,300 additional tons being delivered.

Any trees or limbs that fall onto city roads will be cleared away by road crews as soon as possible.

Police have said they will help any drivers who become stranded, and they have additional officers ready to go, just in case.

However, Mayor Gray said the best thing for everyone to do is to stay off the roads, if possible, and take care of their neighbors and pets.

Kentucky Utilities has also reported a full staff ready for any situations that may arise, and have also asked for help from outside the state to make sure any power outages are restored as quickly as possible.

In addition, homeless shelters have been set up for those in need throughout the area. For a comprehensive list, click here.
