Warming stations offered for citizens

A cold front with strong winds is already causing power outages in Pike County. As of 9 a.m. Dec. 23, there were 37 outages in Meansville, 27 in Concord and 13 in Williamson with several individual outages across the county according to Southern Rivers Energy. The Pike County Sheriff’s Office offered warming stations for citizens who lose power during the winter storm.

“Pike County will be making warming stations available to residents that lose power during the expected arctic blast over the next few days. If you lose power and need a place to go to get warm please call 911 and you will be instructed where to go. Personnel will be on stand by throughout the holiday weekend should the warming stations need to be opened,” said the sheriff’s message to citizens.

Pike County EMA director Jim Totten suggested citizens check the Pike County EMA, Sheriff’s Office and Commissioners facebook pages for updates during the storms.

“If we have power outages around Pike County, people can look on the following websites or FB pages for locations of warming centers. They should bring a chair in case it’s needed. These will be warming centers not shelters,” he said.
