Snow Coverage: Kingsport

The Kingsport News Times, which has 33,000 subscribers, is reporting that their building has lost power. That means they are not publishing on a regular schedule.

Subscribers' Saturday editions should go out later in the day Saturday, or possibly with the Sunday edition. It will depend on what the weather and power limitations permit. Here's their website:

They also print the Johnson City Press and that paper will not be printed tonight either. Their circulation department tells us this is the first time since 1998 this has happened. They are working to get the entire edition on-line for their readers.


Vehicles are disabled on Christian Church Road in Boones Creek, Friday, Dec. 18, 2009 near Johnson City, Tenn. A major storm moving up the Atlantic Coast on the last shopping weekend before Christmas threatened to shut down much of the region as officials warned of up to 20 inches of snow and significant power outages.
