State Of Emergency Declared For Virginia

State Of Emergency Declared For Virginia

Winter AwakensAs the massive storm approaches Governor Terry McAuliffe has declared a state of emergency for Virginia. The storm is expected to dump up to two feet of snow and deliver wind gusts up to 50mph. The blizzard warning that's been issued it expected to be upgraded to a blizzard watch. Virginia is known for not dealing with the snow very well. With less than an inch landing last night and gridlock taking place all over Northern Virginia residents need to plan ahead and stay off the roads this weekend.

 

The storm is expected to arrive sometime Friday afternoon and wrap up the first half of Sunday. More than 500 vehicles have been dispatched to pretreat roads. VDOT is prepared to work throughout the storm but, roads will be extremely hazardous and it’s advised to cancel any travel plans and take shelter until the storm passes. The Virginia National Guard has been authorized to bring in up to 500 personnel to help with response operations to the severe weather. Staying off the roads will enable to crews to clear them and keep up with the storm as best as possible. 

 

Residents are being advised to be prepared to be able to take care of themselves and their families for up to 72 hours in the event of blocked roads and power outages. Check on your neighbors, especially those that are elderly and if possible offer to shovel snow for them. Make sure you have extra batteries on hand and keep your electronic devices charged in case of a power outage. BRING YOUR PETS INSIDE!

 

If you need help, information, or resources during the storm dial 211.
