ice_storm_2.jpgAcross Kentucky, the state hardest hit by the deadly ice storm that has hobbled parts of several states for most of this week and last, people without power spent another day Saturday crammed into the homes of relatives, neighbors or shelters. Others awaited sporadic visits from rescuers, and some still hadn’t been reached at all. The American Red Cross of  Western, Kentucky asked for 50 teddies to carry with them and provide for children who are now living in shelters.   Many schools, and businesses have been without electricity for a long time and people are using space heaters that have started house fires.   “It’s a bad situation and may be quite a while before it gets better”, says Hiedi Cox of the Red Cross Disaster Team.
