Huntington Area: Immediate Evacuation of Two Streets

Posted 5:26 p.m.

Residents who live on these roads in the Huntington area of the county MUST evacuate their homes immediately:

  • Fenwick Drive
  • Arlington Terrace

For public safety, power will be turned off as necessary on these two streets, so it is essential that you leave now. 

Please move your cars to higher ground.

Connector buses will be available at 2400 Huntington Ave., if you need transportation to the shelter at the Lee District RECenter, 6601 Telegraph Road, Alexandria.  The buses are wheelchair accessible and will accept companion animals(cats and dogs). Dogs must be on leashes and cats in carriers.

When you are evacuating, please bring:

  • A three-day supply of special items for any older adults, people with disabilities or infant members of your household, including assistive equipment.
  • Special diet food, esp. if you have food restrictions/allergies.
  • Change of clothing for each family member.

Pets – Animal Control will have a mobile van to shelter companion animals (cats and dogs) affected by the evacuation at the Lee District RECenter, 6601 Telegraph Road.  Do not bring the pet’s toys and food. Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a carrier.

Travel Safely: Turn around, don’t drown – Never drive through standing water on a roadway — turn around, don’t drown. Water may be much deeper than you think.

Once you are in a safe location, let a family member or friend know your whereabouts.

For additional information or questions, call the emergency hotline at 571-350-1300, TTY 711.

    Vote no on the $30 million dollar bond referendum, why throw good money after bad? Practice eminent domain and make another stream valley park.
