July 26, 2010

Officials in Kentucky’s Pike County say damage estimates from recent flooding could exceed $10 million.

Judge executive Wayne Rutherford said in a statement that the damage totals would make Pike County eligible for federal disaster assistance.

Officials there worried about looting imposed a curfew in the parts of central Pike County that were hit by harsh storms last Saturday. The 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew was started after Pike Sheriff Charles Keesee reported several instances of theft and looting in the Raccoon Creek area.
