TRI-STATE (WFIE) -
Freezing rain has been falling since around 5:00 Tuesday in Madisonville and across western Kentucky.
Our crew in Madisonville says they have seen several salt trucks go up and down Main Street in Madisonville where the freezing rain has coated spots on the road.
There will be some slick spots on the roads, especially across the western Kentucky counties.
Our Madisonville crew says because of that some businesses and restaurants closed early Tuesday night, to allow their workers time to get home safely.
It's still raining some in Madisonville, so the fear is all the moisture on the roads could refreeze overnight. Keep an eye out for black ice overnight and in the morning.
14 News caught up with some in Madisonville who remember all too well that ice storm a few years back and they were preparing for the worst, just in case.
"I'm getting some gas for my generator, just in case. I figure it's cheap insurance. If I don't use it, I can put it in my truck as I need to, but I'd rather be safe than sorry," said resident, Ken Hendrix. "I'm going to put some rocks in the back of my truck, like a poor man's 4-wheel drive. That's about it."
"We just want to urge everybody to continue to pay attention to the weather. This is part of winter weather, paying attention and being ready for whatever comes at us, paying close attention to the weather forecast and what's going on around them, what's really out there on the road," said Keith Todd with the Kentucky Transportation Department.
Crews are out in Union, Hopkins, and Webster Counties spot treating the roads.
Todd says crashes have been reported in numerous counties. Sleet mixed with snow is creating hazardous driving conditions.
The best advice Tuesday night is to slow down and stay alert.
