Mandatory Evacuation

Gov. Ralph Northam has ordered a mandatory evacuation for Zone A -- the most flood-prone areas of the Tidewater region. 

The Virginia Department of Emergency Management's website was experiencing issues following Northam's announcement, but this link will be able to show you your zone. Users can zoom in to see their zone or click on the blue icon at the bottom of the page to search by address.

Zone A is blue and is the most at-risk for flooding from a hurricane. The risk goes down from there: Zone B is green, C is orange and D is red. The zone map covers 23 localities and 1.25 million people living in Coastal Virginia.

The evacuation goes into effect at 8 a.m. Tuesday.

This is a list that we hope will help you be better prepared in the event this hurricane comes our way. As always, if there is anything you, your family, or neighbors need, please contact the church immediately.
