Coastal Storm Ian Update - 10-1-2022 @ 2pm

Posted on October 1, 2022 at 2:23 PM by Daniel Hudson

All –

Please see the email from Ms. Paula Miller of Dominion Energy regarding their latest status and efforts.

Also, here are two summary documents regarding peak wind and rainfall from yesterday (Sept 30th) as provided by Jeff Orrock, NWS Wakefield Meteorologist in Charge.  He further reported that post-storm maps will be forthcoming.

For a more detailed assessment of the impacts of Ian on our community, our STORM Dashboard Map reflects the number and types of incidents that were reported (obviously not all issues are reported).

Dark blue and dark green circles = debris blocking street; Red squares = damaged building; Red circles = flooded street; Pink and purple circles = traffic light issues; Bright green circles = tree damage; Red triangles = down light pole; Purple triangles = downed telephone pole; Yellow triangle; down power line.  The STORM Report provides a listing of events with specific addresses redacted to protect the privacy of the caller(s).

Crews continue to respond to the debris and ensure roadways are cleared and open.

Please feel free to send any pictures of damage and crews in action to EOC-Plans@norfolk.gov.

The Policy Group will meet tomorrow to discuss the impending Nor’easter.  Update to follow.

Thank you!

Jim Redick

Director, Emergency Preparedness and Response
