LONDON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Emergency shelters were being opened near two Exits along I-75 in south central Kentucky for stranded motorists, according to State Police. Southbound traffic was being diverted to Exit 76 in Berea, while northbound traffic was being diverted to Exit 41 in London.

Some motorists said they had been stuck on I-75 for ten hours.

The American Red Cross was providing food to stranded drivers.

London Police say all the hotel rooms in the city are full.

State Police say hotel rooms in Berea were filling-up fast.

Authorities say West London Baptist Church at 28 Royal Drive, off of Parker Road in London, was going to be used as a shelter in Laurel County.
