Black Diamond Search And Rescue Council

Virginia emergency officials and local emergency managers have looked at the latest meteorological data and updates from the National Hurricane Center, National Weather Service Wakefield, on Hurricane Dorian this morning. In consideration of this information and the timing of the storm, no widespread evacuation order is expected for this storm in coastal Virginia.

Local governments may order certain vulnerable populations in flood-prone areas to move from their homes, or businesses, until the storm passes based on historical flooding or conditions as they develop. Stay tuned to local government social media and web sites for the latest information or contact your local emergency management officials for more information.

Virginians should still expect high winds, heavy rains and potential flooding in low lying and coastal areas Thursday night and Friday. The National Weather Service advises to expect coastal, tidal and inland flooding.

Residents should prepare to weather the storm in their homes and prepare for possible interruptions to power, transportation and other services. VAemergency.gov/emergency-kit

Rest In Peace T’mi.
