Ike's remnants knock out power to thousands in Kentucky

The remnants of Hurricane Ike have caused a huge windstorm in Central and Western Kentucky. About 300,000 people are reportedly without power in Louisville, where the Jefferson County public schools and Louisville's Catholic schools have decided to call off classes for tomorrow. Jefferson and several other Kentucky counties, especially in the western part of the state, have declared states of emergency due to the wind damage.

Here in Eastern Kentucky, 861 customers of Kentucky Power were without power as of 6:16pm ET. Click here to see the Kentucky Power outage map.

If you have any wind damage reports, post it in the comments section. PRAY for those affected by Ike here and along the Gulf Coast.
