Much of Region 8 is under a winter storm watch now through Friday evening, including Dunklin County.
Freezing rain, sleet and snow are forecast to fall throughout the area. In some places, the ice accumulation could reach an inch or more.
As a result, power lines could come down.
The Kennett Police Department and Kennett City Light, Gas and Water remind everyone not to touch downed electric lines.
They stress any lines on the ground should be considered dangerous.
Should you see downed lines, call CLGW immediately at (573) 888-5366.
