BOONE COUNTY — Ice and snow kept first responders on high alert around Boone County last Thursday with some challenges.

According to Boone County Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Mayhorn, as of early evening, there were no power outages reported.

One medical call in the Ashford area required assistance in accessing a patient from volunteers at the Racine Fire Department.

Across the county, multiple accidents were reported via the 911 center.

One rollover accident in Bull Creek on Route 85 saw no major injuries, nor did multiple accidents on U.S. 119 and Route 17 in the afternoon.

Across the state, Appalachian Power reported over 47,000 outages overnight on Wednesday through Thursday. Ice accumulation was heavy in Jackson, Mason, Cabell, Wayne and Putnam counties, providing approximately half of the outages.

More messy weather was expected late Sunday through early Tuesday, with the National Weather Service issuing a winter storm watch on Saturday night anticipating total snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches and ice accumulations up to a quarter of an inch. Yet another potential winter storm could be headed this way on Thursday and Friday, according to forecasts this past weekend.
