If you are planning to travel to our office or have scheduled a test or meeting, please be sure to call ahead and check our website or Facebook page for the latest scheduling changes.
This storm is expected to cause significant issues. Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency yesterday, an action that authorizes state agencies to be ready to assist local governments in responding to the major snow storm that is forecast to hit the Commonwealth starting tomorrow.
In declaring a state of emergency, the Governor authorizes state agencies to identify and position resources for quick response anywhere they are needed in Virginia. “Now is the time for Virginia to get ready for this storm,” said Governor McAuliffe. “This state of emergency declaration will empower the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, the Department of Transportation, the Virginia National Guard, and our electric and cable utilities to prepare for a storm that is predicted to create power outages and significant travel challenges across the Commonwealth over the next few days.
