Gov. Terry McAuliffe has issued a state of emergency as Virginia prepares for potentially dangerous flooding and the possible landfall of Hurricane Joaquin somewhere along the Mid-Atlantic coast.

The National Weather Service office in Sterling says the latest models show Joaquin making landfall closer to our area Sunday into Monday. Regardless of where the storm comes ashore, Virginia is expected to get slammed with five to 10 inches of rain tomorrow, Friday and Saturday because of a separate Nor’easter storm system making its way along the coast.

The executive order allows state and local emergency responders to begin to prepare for the rain as well as the possibility that Hurricane Joaquin will impact Virginia early next week, according to a news release. The order is retroactive to Tuesday.

“I cannot stress enough the imperative for Virginians to focus on the rainstorms that are headed our way tomorrow and Friday, well before Hurricane Joaquin could potentially impact Virginia,” McAuliffe said. “The forecast of up to 10 inches of rain in areas across Virginia could result in floods, power outages and a serious threat to life and property.”
