VDOT PREPARED FOR EFFECTS OF TROPICAL STORM MICHAEL; MOTORISTS SHOULD PLAN AHEAD TO ADJUST THURSDAY TRAVEL
Pay close attention to local forecasts and official announcements for safety messages
RICHMOND, Va. - The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is finalizing preparations ahead of effects from Tropical Storm Michael, and crews stand ready to respond to any unsafe travel conditions or damage resulting from the storm. With heavy rain and wind gusts forecasted to begin in parts of the Commonwealth early Thursday afternoon, travelers are encouraged to plan ahead for changing road conditions, and adjust travel, as needed. The storm could cause downed trees, debris in roadways and high water.
Ahead of the storm, crews have been clearing drainage facilities, preparing trucks and equipment and coordinating for additional debris and tree removal crews to be on standby.
Travel tips
• If a traffic signal is out, drivers are advised to treat the intersection as a four way stop.
• Never drive through water flowing across a road. It takes only six to 12 inches of water to float a small vehicle.
• Never drive around barricades. Remember, the road has been closed for your safety.
• Slow down when driving through standing water. Driving too fast through water could cause you to lose control and hydroplane.
• Avoid flood-prone areas, especially along creeks and other low-lying areas. Water in those areas can rise quickly and without warning during heavy rains.
• In the event of a flash flood warning for your area, seek high ground immediately.
• Watch for debris on the roadway. If you encounter a downed power line, do not try to move the line. Downed trees may contain power lines. Contact VDOT or Dominion Virginia Power.
• If involved in a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
