Somerset might not get snow, but we’re sure to get wind


Somerset —

He added, “It will continue to be cold (through the week), but as far as the strong winds and steady precipitation, it looks to wind down (tonight).”
Despite the lack of any immediate threat, local emergency personnel are still on alert. Tiger Robinson, Pulaski County’s Public Safety Director, said that he’s been closely monitoring weather conditions ever since news of Hurricane Sandy’s affects broke.
“We’ve been watching it for days,” he said, “and will continue watching until it passes through.”
Robinson’s services may be needed less here than further east. He said that Kentucky’s emergency responders have been put on notice, and there’s a chance they could be called in to other areas to help if reinforcements are needed.
Pulaskians can count themselves fortunate, then, that it isn’t they who will need the help.
Or as Geogerian put it, “We’re certainly in a lot better shape than what the east coast is going to get.”
