Hurricane Florence is making her way towards Hampton Roads and now is the time to get your emergency plans in place! Linked below are resources that may be helpful as you are preparing for the storm. If there is anything additional that would be helpful in this post please comment below and I will get it added. Stay safe!
If you are in a Zone that has been ordered to Evacuate, please do so. No one can determine what will happen during a Hurricane and your safety, and the safety of your family is too important to risk. Evacuations have been ordered for anyone living in Zone A (you can check your zone here).
