Hurricane Irene’s Impact on Fairfax County
However, we must be prepared for power outages due to downed trees, and minor flooding from heavy rain. Currently the National Weather Service predicts 2-4 inches of rain and possibly 30-50 mph wind gusts for Fairfax County. This is subject to change depending on the path of the storm. We will update you as the storm progresses.
We should always remain prepared. Ensure that you have food and water, medications, and special needs considerations for up to 72 hours, or 3 days. Be prepared for power outages and stay informed. Two ways to stay informed are through the Community Emergency Alert Network (CEAN) at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/cean or through this blog.
