A storm system that swept through Pike County, Ky., Friday morning produced flash flooding and severe storms.

The county is under a code red until 2 p.m. Friday, according to Eyewitness News newspaper partner the Williamson Daily News.

A Friday report filed by the paper said the water from Pond Creek was close to road level in Huddy, Ky. The report also said a homeowner near Pinsonfork, Ky., rushed to get outdoor pets to safety.

Storm Team Meteorologist Nick Patrick said the Kimper area had received 4 inches of rain in the last 24 hours.

Civitas Media photographer Kendra Mahon captured some of the flooding in the Ball Fork Mountain area of the county. That flooding can be viewed in the above picture.

The paper also said there were reports of high water in Mingo County.
