PULASKI CO., Ky. (WKYT) – Today, cranes could be seen at Lees Ford Marina at Lake Cumberland. Roofs on docks were being lifted to reveal the damaged boats below. This comes almost a week after a snow storm dumped ice and then snow on the roofs, crushing many of the boats below.

The footage taken from helicopters, boaters and even drones shows the almost indescribable coming from the marinas on the lake.  Estimated to be in the millions of dollars of damages, it will take quite some time to get marinas back to normal.

JAMESTOWN, KY (WAVE) – Nature’s wrath gave Lexington video producer Jeb Smith a unique opportunity to audition his company’s newest technology Monday.  And the pictures his drone delivered may give a number of pleasure-boat owners the opportunity to recover some of their losses. “We’ll probably use this for promotion or clients, but if they want something to show their insurance companies, I’ll help ’em out,” Smith, a principal in Post-Time Productions of Lexington, said. He might get more takers than he can handle. A glimpse of Jamestown Marina alone showed at least two dozen houseboats and other watercraft trapped in their slips;

JABEZ, Ky. (WKYT) – The investigation began in June when police say Glen “Randall” Dixon and his son, Josh, who worked at the Lake Cumberland 4 H Educational Center in Jabez, began making off with boxes of gun ammo. “Obviously it’s a serious situation when you talk about ammo. 30,000 rounds of ammo,” said Wayne County Deputy Sheriff Cody Neal.
