Progress Made in Pike County after Storm
Winter Storm 2014 left Pike County crippled.
Roads in the county did not officially reopen till 4 this afternoon, four days after the start of the sleet and snow. State and local resources worked diligently to clear the roads, but a thick sheet of ice made travel conditions some of the worst in the state.
Troy city leaders will meet Tuesday to discuss how the winter mess was handled and what can be done next time.
Troy's E-911 received 724 calls, majority due to the weather. But even with that number of calls there were no major wrecks or injuries. City leaders say they were extremely lucky.
Troy Mayor Jason Reeves said, "From the top to the bottom our people performed great in a very difficult circumstance...it was just a team, so many people helped. And we never would have made it through without everyone pulling together."
Troy Police, Pike County Sheriff's Office, and Brundidge Police all said they were extremely fortunate that there's no damage to their cars or officers.
