New Albany finally got some of the winter weather that had been predicted for several days when heavy snow started falling Wednesday afternoon, February 25, 2015. Three to four inches of snow had accumulated by 6 p.m., and relatively little snow fell in Union County after that time. The National Weather Service radar sweeps showed that most of the snow storm had moved out of our area by 7:30 pm.
New Albany Chief of Police Chris Robertson said there had been a few minor traffic incidents including motor vehicles having slid off the roadway, but no major accidents by nightfall.
As of 8:30 Wednesday evening, Bill Mattox, general manager of New Albany Lights, Gas, and Water (LGW) said he was aware of no significant power outages due to the snow. LGW crews were standing by in case heavy snow broke tree limbs and interrupted electrical service anywhere in the city-owned system.
