On Saturday Governor declared a state of emergency in Virginia ahead of hurricane Florence. The hurricane is predicted to hit the east coast late this week, Thursday or Friday. North Carolina and South Carolina have also declared states of emergency. From the Governor’s office:
“While the impacts of Tropical Storm Florence to Virginia are still uncertain, forecasts increasingly expect the storm to strengthen into a major hurricane that could seriously affect the East Coast and Virginians,” said Governor Northam. “Accordingly, I am declaring a state of emergency so that we can begin to prepare state assets, and I encourage Virginians to monitor forecasts and make their own preparations now.”
