Please note that the forecast for the next few days calls for extremely cold temperatures. Take precautions to keep yourself safe. The Virginia Department of Emergency Management urges everyone to:

  • Bring pets inside
  • Be prepared to take care of yourself in the case of widespread power outages
  • Have a battery powered or hand-crank radio and extra batteries on hand.
  • Avoid overexertion when shoveling snow, working or recreating outside, no matter your age or physical condition.
  • Always wear proper cold-weather apparel: gloves/mittens, hats, scarves and snow boots. Dress in several layers of loose-fitting clothing and cover your face and mouth if possible.
  • Be aware of the wind chill factor
  • Stay dry. If you become wet, head indoors and change wet clothing immediately.
  • Limit your and/or children's time outdoors.
  • Do not ignore shivering. It's an important first sign that the body is losing heat. Persistent shivering means it's time to go back inside.
  • Check on others who may not be able to care for themselves
