Hurricane Florence

Date: September 19, 2018
Time: All week
Location: 12111 West Broad Street

AS OF 9AM 13September2018

Strange’s is tracking the path of Hurricane Florence in order to best predict and plan for potential effects to our customers, employees and business.

Currently, there are no expected impacts to Strange’s in the next 48 hours.  As Hurricane Florence moves inland with a possible turn to the Valley of Virginia, we expect localized flooding in our Richmond service area due to the rainfall from the storm into the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  This flooding may begin Monday if the storm track changes.

Please check back to this page for updates as we have them.  We will also update social media and the internal Strange’s Weather hotline as more information becomes available.

The current position and probable track are below:
