LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Hundreds of additional resources have been brought in to assist LG&E due to the threat of power outages.

Crews from Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin and Tennessee were rolling into the LG&E Auburndale Operations Center throughout the day Sunday.

Before they hit the streets the out of town crews will be briefed and going through training.

With the combination of wind and ice on the trees workers are also preparing to work long shifts.

Liz Pratt with LG&E said, "This storm has many different elements. We are continuing to monitor that. We have working for the last several days directly with NWS as well as neighboring utilities to see how this storm has impacted their area as it has moved through."

    Have a Great Thanksgiving!Have a Great Thanksgiving!

    For today, it will be nothing more than perfect! It will even feel a lot like fall as well! High temperatures will be in the lower 60s, so most of the day temperatures will be in the 50s! Along with the cooler temperatures, we will have more sunny skies and low humidity. This is great weather to get outside before (or after) the big meal! If you’re heading out tonight for Black Friday deals, the weather should be really nice! There will likely be no clouds in the sky.
