Team Norfolk Tropical Strom Ophelia Final Update

Posted to Emergency Preparedness & Response by Daniel Hudson

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This will be the final update regarding Tropical Storm Ophelia.  The Hourly Graph shows no winds or rainfall amounts of concern and the Tide Chart reflects a forecasted afternoon high tide slightly lower than previous forecasts and the observation is indicating it will be lower still.  That’s not to suggest ponding isn’t on the roadways; the WAZE Live Map shows the alerts are working well and constantly updated by the Wazers in and around the community.

While not expected, you will be notified if conditions change.  Likewise, if there are any lessons learned you would like captured, or anything you would like to report or ask, please do so at  We will be in touch with city departments to update the Continuity of Operations Plan!

Finally, I have seen rain observations around 4.1” for Norfolk and I’m not indicating that’s not correct; I’m just attaching NWS rainfall observation information which is otherwise available here.  If we receive additional information, we will share it with all interested.

THANK YOU to all who make up this amazing Team.  It’s an honor and pleasure to work with so many incredible people (and friends) and all the more rewarding when things go according to plan!
