Prepare Now for 2018 Hurricane Season
In 2017, many regions suffered through nightmarish scenarios from multiple hurricanes.
Virginia, however, has not experienced a direct hit from a major hurricane in generations. The Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) says not if, but when, and is encouraging all Virginians to start preparing today for the 2018 hurricane season which officially began on June 1st.
"Hurricanes cause high winds, tornadoes and landslides, but their deadliest hazard is flooding. Tropical storms and depressions can be just as dangerous."
Coastal Virginians, you need to know your hurricane evacuation zone for both your home and workplace. Evacuation zones A through D are in place across coastal Virginia. Residents will be directed to evacuate depending on the tides, the storms intensity, it's path and other factors.
