Pike County Storms

On New Years Day, severe flooding rocked many parts of the Big Sandy region including communities in Pike County. The floods resulted in rescue squads, such as the Pikeville Fire Department’s swift water rescue team, being deployed to help the cause.“We ended up doing a couple of shallow water crossings,” said Pikeville FD Swift Water Rescue Team member Lt. Matthew Stevens. Following the floods, the region also received a snowstorm, which dropped approximately five to eight inches across much of the area could mean more dangerous and sloppy conditions to continue according to forecasters.
