Skywarn Severe Weather


With the Severe Weather possibilities in the Tidewater Region of Virginia, we are susceptible to various weather conditions especially during the Hurricane Season. Sometimes we have major flooding due to tidal surges and high winds can cause down trees or power-lines and cause various power outages across the area. We want to have local information and links available for quickly accessing information when it’s needed. Below are some of the useful links to the local Skywarn Nets and activation’s along with various weather related websites and emergency power outage information.
