Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
The Pikeville 911 Public Safety Center has received a complaint of a Phishing Scam involving Tax Returns.
Victims are receiving calls from a "Private Number" and the caller is advising the Victim that an issue with their tax return has came up and they are asking for the Victim's Bank Account Number to have the tax return deposited correctly.
The Pikeville Police Department is advising anyone who may receive a call similar to this, not to release any account information.
Check with your Tax preparer to verify the validity of the call.
