State of Emergency in Pike County


Pike County Judge Executive William M. Deskins declares a State of Emergency in Pike County until further notice, due to the Winter Storm that is now impacting Pike County. This winter storm is causing very hazardous travel conditions across Pike County. 

Judge Deskins urges everyone to stay off the roads.  Road crews are working to clear the roads, but the current rate of snowfall is so heavy the crews are having difficulty keeping up. All roads are snow covered and extremely dangerous for travel.

At present there are no power outages in Pike County. Should there be power outages shelters and or warming centers will be opened as needed.  Locations will be announced on local media as well as the Pike County Emergency Management Facebook page.

If you need assistance due to the Winter Storm call Pike County Office of Emergency Management at 606-437-4126, If you have an emergency call 9-1-1.\
