HOPKINSVILLE, Tenn. - The hardest hit spots in this area are along the Kentucky/Tennessee line. The storm is letting up right now in Hopkinsville, but it did cause a lot of challenges for emergency crews today. Right now, the roads are still wet, and with the freezing temperatures it is only going to get slicker and more dangerous. The freezing rain is not only making it hard to drive, but it also caused some power outages in Christian and Trigg Counties earlier today. More than 200 residents lost power, but Pennyrile Electric Service restored it. The freezing rain turned to sleet earlier tonight, but Pennyrile administrators say that is a good thing for their service. There are still some icicles hanging down and the power lines could freeze again overnight if the freezing rain picks up again. Pennyrile Electric is keeping its customers posted on Facebook with power outages and the latest outage. Right now they are working to get current outages fixed quickly.
