Forecasts are now calling for around a quarter inch of ice accumulation with northern Pike getting 1 to 2 inches of snow.
Pike County is among the counties in the Winter Storm Warning area and is also one of the 79 counties for which Gov. Nathan Deal declared a state of emergency today (Jan. 6) ahead of the winter storm.
Members of the Pike County Fire Department and Grady EMS are preparing for the inclement weather and will have a 24-hour truck stationed in Molena, Hollonville and Zebulon. Should the roads become impassible due to weather, all non-emergency EMS calls will be held until roads are cleared and EMS can safely transport the patients.
