Hampton declares local emergency; state officials to tour storm damaged areas
City crews are still working to clean up public areas. Seventeen crews collected 49 truckloads of debris in affected areas on Saturday. Fourteen crews collected 49 loads on Sunday.
Today crews are out on normal collection routes, and an additional 11 crews are in affected areas collecting debris. On Tuesday crews will be out on normal collection routes, with additional trucks in affected areas. Wednesday is normally not a collection day, but all crews will be in and working in affected areas as needed.
The City is recommending that permit fees for people repairing tornado damage be waived. City Council will take a formal vote at their next meeting.
People interested in helping victims of the tornadoes can make financial contributions to local charities and faith-based organizations that are responding to the situation or to the Virginia Disaster Relief Fund at http://www.disasterfund.virginia.gov/.
