Virginia Natural Gas is closely monitoring Tropical Storm Hermine, and has taken all necessary precautions to help maintain safe and reliable natural gas service to customers. Virginia Natural Gas personnel are strategically positioned throughout the service area, and are prepared to respond quickly to emergencies as they arise.

The following are guidelines associated with natural gas safety during weather emergencies:

Detecting Gas Leaks
• If customers smell the rotten egg odor that is often associated with natural gas, they should immediately leave the affected area; call 9-1-1 then the 24-hour emergency response line at 1-877-572-3342 from a safe location.
• Residents should never try to identify the source of a leak themselves.
• If the odor of gas is present, do not use a telephone or cellular phone, turn light switches on or off, operate any appliance or do anything that might cause a spark, such as lighting a match.

Damage Prevention
• Strong winds and saturated grounds could cause trees to become uprooted. Before removing downed trees, customers should dial the Virginia Utility Protection Service by calling 8-1-1 or 1-800-552-7001 to have the location of underground utility lines marked, because downed trees could become tangled with the natural gas lines.
• If a natural gas meter is damaged or gas line is exposed, immediately leave the area; call 9-1-1 then the 24-hour emergency response line at 1-877-572-3342 from a safe location.

Meter Safety
• Customers are encouraged to know how to locate their natural gas meter.
• Following a weather emergency, ensure the gas meter is visible, and the area surrounding the meter is free of trash and debris. Mechanical equipment used after the storm to clean up a location may damage the meter if it is hidden.
• If a natural gas meter is damaged or gas line is exposed, immediately leave the area; call 9-1-1 then the Virginia Natural Gas 24-hour emergency response number at 1-877-572-3342.

Appliance Safety
• Customers are advised to leave their natural gas service on during a hurricane or severe storm. Most gas appliances have safety valves that shut off the flow of gas automatically if the pilot light goes out.
• If flooding occurs at a residence or business and the gas appliances are under water, customers are advised not to operate their appliances until a safety inspection is conducted.

Natural Gas Generators
• During a power outage, natural gas generators provide continuous fuel supply from an existing natural gas line. While these units are available in a range of sizes to meet various energy needs, customers are encouraged to contact Virginia Natural Gas prior to installation to determine whether their service line and meter meets load requirements for the generator’s safe and efficient operation.

NCDOT UPDATE: 

Equipment has been staged in various areas since the previous threat so crews can quickly react to any issues that develop, such as sand overwash on roads. A front loader and motor grader are in place on Ocracoke Island and in Buxton, a front loader is set at Kitty Hawk, and several pieces of equipment are set up in the parking lot south of the Oregon Inlet bridge on Pea Island. Additional staff was shifted to Ocracoke so that workers will be in place to begin cleanup along N.C. 12 if ferries should be delayed in restoring service.
Other workers have been ensuring barricades and appropriate signage are on hand, and that chainsaws are fueled and ready to use. Crews are also reviewing safety protocol regarding swift moving water and downed power lines, and making sure they are wearing proper safety equipment. They will be on standby through the weekend to go where needed.
Equipment and traffic safety devices at construction sites are also being removed or secured. At the Bonner Bridge project, the contractor has implemented a severe weather plan that includes relocation of some marine equipment to protected areas and securing of other equipment. Department of Transportation location and surveys staff are on standby to perform a post-storm underwater sonar survey of the existing bridge to check for any issues caused by Hermine.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has issued a State of Emergency ahead of Tropical Storm Hermine. 

A state of emergency is declared under Virginia law so that state resources can be made available.

“We are strongly encouraging everyone in Virginia to prepare for the possibility of damaging winds, downed trees, power outages and flooding in much of the Commonwealth,” said Governor McAuliffe. “I have been briefed by the National Weather Service and my emergency team, who are tracking this storm and monitoring for the potential that it will reconstitute as a nor’easter with significant rainfall, life-threatening storm surge and flooding. I urge Virginians to limit travel as the severe weather arrives and evacuate if recommended by officials. We hope this storm passes quickly through our Commonwealth, but our top priority must be to ensure the safety of our citizens and their families.”

VIRGINIA NATIONAL GUARD: 

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency Sept. 2, 2016, and authorized the Virginia National Guard to bring up 300 personnel on state active duty to support a multi-agency state effort to prepare for possible impacts generated by remnants of Hurricane Hermine. The Guard plans to stage Soldiers in the Hampton Roads area with Humvees, light/medium tactical trucks and chain saws. Alerts will begin Friday afternoon, and personnel and equipment are scheduled to be in place by Saturday morning to assist local law enforcement and emergency response organizations.

Expected missions for the Guard include using Humvees and light/medium tactical trucks to provide transportation through high water, Griffin said. The 4×4 light medium tactical vehicle, or LMTV, has a 2.5-ton capacity and the 6×6 medium tactical vehicle, or MTV, has a 5-ton capacity. Soldiers will also be organized into debris reduction teams with chain saws.

Tips to keep pets safe during the storm from PETA:

·         ·        
Take animals indoors. Never leave
them chained or penned up outside. If you seek safety within your residence,
include any rabbits, dogs, cats, or other animals who can be taken indoors.

·               · If you need to move to a stronger structure,
know your destination ahead of time. Do not plan to leave animals unsupervised
in a car—they can suffer from heatstroke once the ambient temperature rises
above 70 degrees, even if water is available and the windows are slightly open,
or the car may be overturned or crushed during a significant storm.

·                · Although emergency shelters sometimes turn away
animals, motels in the area are likely to accept dogs, cats, and other small
animals in an emergency. Move small animals in secure carriers, and keep dogs
leashed. Frightening sounds and unfamiliar surroundings may make them bolt.
Take water and food bowls, a favorite toy, a blanket, a towel, and enough food
for at least a week.

·                · Have your animals microchipped, and put secure,
legible ID tags on them.

·               · Watch for other animals in need, including
strays and animals who may have been left behind by neighbors. If you see an
animal in distress and are unable to help, note the animal’s location and call
authorities for help immediately.

Update from the City of Suffolk:

The Suffolk Department of Public Works is
continually conducting preventative roadway, ditch and culvert maintenance, and
in advance of severe weather they also make certain that areas that are known
to have problems due to heavy rainfall and tidal flooding receive special
attention and that advance equipment is staged to avoid delays or potential
safety issues.   

 

Crews
have been out in full force this week in preparation for Tropical Storm Hermine
making sure the necessary resources are in place and will continue with these
efforts throughout the holiday weekend.

 

They
would like to remind citizens of the following roadway safety tips:

 

  • Do not drive through high water. Stay at home as
    severe weather arrives.
  • Know the weather terms and what you should do: 
  • Flood Watch or Flash Flood Watch:
    There is an increased possibility of flooding or a flash flood in your
    area.
  • Flood Warning:
    Flooding is occurring or will likely occur very soon. If emergency
    officials advise you to evacuate, do so immediately.
  • Flash Flood Warning:
    Flash flooding is occurring. Seek higher ground immediately – don’t wait
    for official instructions.
  • Do not walk through moving water. What might seem like
    a small amount of moving water can easily knock you down.
  • Know
    the road conditions before you travel this holiday weekend. Go to
    http://www.511Virginia.org
    or dial 511 from any phone for real-time traffic information and road
    condition reports.
  • Do
    not drive into flooded areas. If your vehicle becomes surrounded by rising
    water, get out quickly and move to higher ground, if possible.
  • Flood
    water might cut off access to roads. Be prepared to stay where you are
    until floodwaters recede.
  • Determine
    in advance the safest route from your home to a safe place that can
    protect you from high winds or flooding. If there is a flood, you may have
    only minutes to get to safety.
  •  

    Citizens can contact the Suffolk Police Department non-emergency
    number at 923-2350 for storm-related questions, or 514-7600 for non-emergency
    roadway-related issues.

    Latest update from the City of Norfolk:

    There will be flooding in and around Norfolk, particularly between the hours of 9am-1pm. If you live in a low-lying area vulnerable to surge flooding, here are some places you can park:

    York Street Garage located at 215 W. York Street. The garage will open at 6:00 p.m. today. Vehicles must be removed by 12:00 p.m. Sunday, September 4. 

    You may also park your vehicles at the following parking lots:
    · Pretlow Anchor Branch Library – 111 W. Ocean View Ave.
    · Community Beach Park – 700 E. Ocean View Ave.
    · Crossroads School – 8021 Old Ocean View Road
    · Granby High School – 7101 Granby Street
    · Norview High School – 6501 Chesapeake Blvd.
    · Willard Model School – 1511 Willow Wood Drive
    · Poplar Hall School – 5523 Pebble Lane

    Also, everyone is encouraged to stay off the roads during this time. Many drivers fell victim to last October’s storm, when their cars were damaged by flooded streets. It is also important to remind your children not to play in the flood waters due to potential of bacteria.

    While the water is currently expected to recede after the 11 am high tide, the high winds are expected to continue throughout Saturday night until around 6-7 am Sunday morning. There is a chance of rain though Sunday into Monday, but with little accumulation. 

    All Norfolk Public Libraries, including Slover Library, recreation centers, Norfolk Fitness & Wellness Center, Virginia Zoo, MacArthur Memorial and Nauticus will be closed on Saturday, September 3.
