Kentucky will receive over 18 million dollars in federal aid to help families who have fallen behind on their water bills.

The money comes from the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program, and Kentuckians were able to apply for that help on Wednesday.

If you qualify for the assistance, the money will go directly to the utility company, for all current or past due bills and late fees.

Applications can be submitted through the nearest Community Action agency which can be found here on the state's Kynect website.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some highe amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
