Tropical Storm Hermine
Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency Friday for the Commonwealth of Virginia based on the National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service forecasts projecting impacts from then Hurricane, now Tropical Storm Hermine.
Potential damaging high winds, periods of heavy rainfall, power outages, and flooding across the eastern portion of the Commonwealth — especially Virginia Beach, Hampton Roads and Norfolk — “could have the potential to impact life safety and create significant transportation issues throughout Virginia,” McAuliffe said.
The tidal Potomac and adjacent areas could see some impact from rain and storm surge.
