Tropical Storm Arthur has gained strength and is nearly at Hurricane intensity. Virginia Beach is now under a Tropical Storm Warning and city officials have postponed all fireworks until Saturday. This includes the Sandbridge Beach fireworks display. Event organizers have decided to hold off on the super hero themed boat parade until Sunday evening.
No matter if we just receive a little rain or a torrential downpour with hurricane force winds, it is important to have your Hurricane Preparedness Kit & Plan together in advance of any potential disaster. For information on how to prepare for a hurricane and other natural disasters please visit the ready.gov website.
We will keep tracking Arthur and let you know if any changes in plans occur.
