While we have not had an actual Hurricane in Richmond or Central Virginia for some time, the first threat for the season, Florence, is making her journey towards the East Coast of the United States with possible impact on Virginia. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency Saturday in anticipation of the potential impact of Tropical Storm Florence, which the National Weather Service expected to become a “dangerous major hurricane.”
While many of us have been watching the residents of Texas trying to recover from Hurricane Harvey, all eyes are now set in the Atlantic for Hurricane Irma. Weather forecasters are predicting a possible direct hit on the South Florida Coast and then a possible right turn up the Mid-Atlantic seaboard.
