Sept. 30, 2022 — The city’s Public Works and Emergency Management departments are monitoring weather reports related to Tropical Storm Ian and are working to keep residents safe during the storm.

The devastating tropical storm is not expected to directly hit Hampton, but the National Weather Service office in Wakefield projects a wet, windy weekend for the entire Hampton Roads region, with the possibility of mild to moderate flooding in coastal areas for several days.

The Public Works Department has had crews on the street since the start of the week, clearing storm drains to minimize the risk of blockages that would cause streets to flood during the storm. The department has trucks on standby to handle any issues that would affect any roadways.

The Emergency Management Office encourages residents to follow the updates on weather reports, from the National Weather Service and through the city’s social media pages.

Anyone with issues to report can call the city’s 3-1-1 center by dialing 311 on any landline phone in Hampton, or 757-727-8311 from a cell phone or a landline outside the city limits.
