Post Date:07/13/2017

On June 1, 2017, the Commonwealth of Virginia unveiled new hurricane evacuation zones for coastal Virginia designed to enhance current evacuation plans, boost public safety, and improve travel efficiency in the event of hurricanes or other disasters.   

The zones allow emergency managers to communicate with citizens who are most at risk as a storm approaches.   Don’t wait until it’s too late: #KnowYourZoneVA today.

The new evacuation zones can be viewed at www.KnowYourZoneVA.org.
