P.M. Blizzard Update
Posted 3:45 p.m.
The blizzard is still here until around midnight.
Here are some things to know this afternoon/evening:
- Please continue to stay off the roads. Please. Plows are getting stuck, so you will not make it anywhere.
- Please do not walk down roadways because you could get struck by a plow or emergency vehicle.
- Take it easy clearing snow. There’s a lot of it and it’s heavy. Take your time. Team up as a neighborhood.
- Check on neighbors, especially elderly or homebound.
- Power outages have been limited, but strong winds are still with us; call in your outage if you lose power.
- VDOT is plowing roads as best as it can under the conditions. Track plow progress online.
- Call or text 9-1-1 if you are experiencing an emergency.
- Clear fire hydrants: we really need your help in digging them out; look at our hydrant locator map.
