For Your Information
Be Prepared: Low-lying areas could see flooding this weekend during high tides (around midnight and midday on Saturday and Sunday). If you live in a low-lying area, you may want to move vehicles and property to higher ground. Learn more about Flooding in Chesapeake. Check the National Weather Service for the current forecast. Sign up for Chesapeake Alert to receive weather and emergency information straight to your phone.
Parking: For people living in low lying areas who need to move their vehicles, the parking garage at the Tidewater Community College, Chesapeake Campus, is available this weekend. The garage, located at 1428 Cedar Road, will accept vehicles up until 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. Vehicles will NOT be able to enter or exit the garage between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. the following morning, except in the case of emergency.
