Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metrosafe dispatchers say the roads were extremely treacherous Friday afternoon and urged caution.

Spokeswoman Jody Duncan said that from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., there were 70 non-injury accidents and 30 stranded motorists. From 3:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., she said there were 18 non-injury accidents and 18 stranded motorists.

The city is on "state form" status, which means that anyone who is involved in a minor accident should simply trade information with the other driver(s). Paperwork can be filed online at www.LouisvilleKY.gov.

There have been two reports of downed power lines, according to Duncan. Anyone who spots a downed power line is asked to call Metrosafe.

Salt and sand trucks are patrolling to roadways, as of Friday afternoon.

Residents are urged to stay indoors as much as possible, and to have an emergency backpack containing water, blankets and other essentials if you must go out. The public is also asked to remember to check on neighbors -- specifically the elderly.
