Snowstorm paralyzes parts of interstates in Ky.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A late winter storm that dumped up to 2 feet of snow in parts of Kentucky has turned stretches of interstates into parking lots.

Gov. Steve Beshear declared a state of emergency Thursday, and National Guard soldiers are making emergency medical runs and rescuing motorists.

Spc. Jeriel Clark says his Humvee has been weaving past stalled vehicles stretching for miles along Interstate 24 in western Kentucky. The soldiers are checking on the stranded motorists and delivering food and water.

Another huge pileup is along a stretch of I-65 near Elizabethtown in central Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Jeff Gregory says some people have been stranded since Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service says 15-20 inches fell in parts of western and central Kentucky. It says 25 inches fell near Radcliff.
