Governor Ralph Northam says all parts of Virginia will experience significant impacts from Hurricane Florence.  


Monday afternoon he ordered a mandatory evacuation of Zone A in Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore.  Those are the lowest lying and most flood prone locations in those areas.  Evacuations will start Tuesday morning at 8:00.
