More than 83,000 LG&E customers still don't have power. But now, the city of Louisville is preparing for a different potential problem.
Above-freezing temperatures thawed out much of the ice and snow once covering grassy areas and roads. It's speeding up power restoration. But another by-product could be flooding, so MSD is clearing catch basins.
2,700 LG&E workers are also out restoring power and fixing power lines. One worker was shocked Sunday afternoon by a hot wire. He was taken to the hospital.
Power lines are still down along dozens of school bus routes. So JCPS has a "homework assignment" for parents and their children.
"They need to go out and help us. They need to walk their routes, however they get to school, if they're walking to a bus or they're walking to school or driving to school to make sure their paths are clear," said Michael Mulheirn, with JCPS Transportation Facilities.
A pipe burst at Seneca High School, destroying the gym floor. One in five JCPS students still does not have electricity. A few thousand teachers and staff members are also in the dark.
"The important thing is to get to school on Tuesday and to get there on time, and again, if clothes are a little wrinkly and you don't quite have the uniform shirt on, I wouldn't worry about that," said Mulheirn.
Students may get another break, if state officials say JCPS does not have to make up all the missed days of school. Otherwise, kids still will be in class several days after the school year is supposed to end.
So far, the city of Louisville has spent almost $800,000 in winter storm recovery efforts. Mayor Abramson says the final bill will determine whether FEMA will give the city money.
"That'll play a major role in terms of what we can afford regarding debris, whether it's multiple locations and then you're on your own or whether it's we go back out and run through the community at some point in time to assist or both," said Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson.
Tuesday, the mayor will announce plans for cleaning up debris and which shelters will stay open.
