The summer playground at Lake Cumberland took a major hit from winter over the weekend, with the weight of ice and snow from Friday’s storm damaging or destroying covers over hundreds of boat slips, according to marina operators. Marina operators were trying Monday to assess the extent of the damage, line up crews to begin clearing collapsed roofs, and plan for rebuilding. An undetermined number of boats were damaged, some of which were pushed underwater. Boat owners were awaiting word about the status of their vessels.
