Mayor Declares State of Emergency; Prepares for Impact from Hurricane Florence

NORFOLK, VA – Norfolk Mayor Kenneth C. Alexander has declared a local state of emergency.  The declaration allows the City to ask for state and federal resources and seek state and federal reimbursement if the cost of the storm reaches a certain threshold.

City crews have been preparing for the storm and have been cleaning storm drains and ditches to ease potential flooding.  In addition, extra crews are on standby throughout the weekend to respond to downed trees due to the wind and saturated ground. Please ensure curbs, gutters and ditches on your property and on your street are clear of debris. Check on your neighbor. Be sure to secure any loose items in your yard and on your street to prevent damage during the storm.  Be prepared to be self-sufficient for 72 hours after the storm in case Norfolk experiences power and utility loss.

All City facilities and Courts will close at 5:00 p.m. today to prepare for the impact from Hurricane Florence.  The City Treasurer and Commissioner of Revenue offices will close at 3:00 p.m. today.

Hampton Roads Transit will provide free bus service to Norfolk residents beginning Wednesday, September 12, 2018.

The City will open shelters for those  residents who need a safe place to ride out the storm.  Food and security are provided. Residents must bring personal items, medications, bedding, blankets and other comforts of home.  Residents who need transportation to the shelter should call the Norfolk Cares Center at (757) 664-6510.  Residents who bring pets to the pet-friendly shelters must bring food and water and are responsible for pet care while at the shelter with their animal.

The Wards Corner Civic League Annual picnic is set to happen Saturday, September 8th 11:00am to 3:00pm at the North Shore Road Playground.  The Civic League will provide the hot dogs and hamburgers.  Bring yourself and the family (optional!…) and a dish you would like to share with your neighbors.

We are in need of volunteers the day of the event.  The more people that step-up, the less each will have to contribute.  If you can help, please contact Liz Lockwood at 757-685-6348.  Leave a message, she will call back.  If you can’t commit in advance, show up at the playground the day of the picnic at 9:00am.

Last year was a great event.  So we hope you will all come out again and enjoy the another great day.
