The Henrico County Board of Supervisors has confirmed a declaration of emergency and reassured residents they will have water even if they lose power.
The storm was first on the agenda last night (9/11/18). County Manager John Vithoulkas says since Isabel, the county has installed emergency backup generators for water. “That is new. So we are hoping for the best. But it is imperative for our residents to prepare for this storm.”
Fire Chief Tony McDowell said, “Across Henrico County, general government and school system preparations have been an all-hands-on-deck effort for the past several days. Our crews have been checking equipment, preparing facilities clearing out drains that can back up during heavy rains.”
