Hampton Roads cities prepare for impact of Hurricane Isaias

Hurricane Isaias is forecast to reach coastal North Carolina and the Hampton Roads area by Monday or Tuesday.

Hampton Roads residents are encouraged to Know Your Zone, stock emergency supply kits, and stay informed.

Stock your emergency supply kit with non-perishable food, water, medications, batteries, flashlights and important documents. Have a plan for pets and make sure they are up-to-date with immunizations and medical records, ID tags and microchips.

Make sure to protect your property and check your insurance coverage. There may be a waiting period for a flood insurance policy to become effective and be aware that not all hurricane-related losses, such as flooding, are covered under traditional policies.
