DGIF: Stay off the water during Hurricane Dorian

dgifThe Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (DGIF) is asking you to stay inside and off the water during Hurricane Dorian.

The Commonwealth is likely to feel the impact of Dorian into coastal Virginia Thursday night and Friday, where low-lying communities such as Hampton Roads could see a storm surge of two to four feet, according to the National Hurricane Center.

DGIF urges caution in utilizing public access facilities. Boat ramps may be subject to significant storm surge as well as flooding from heavy rainfall. There is also the potential for debris across roadways and in waterways.

Visitors to Wildlife Management Areas and the Bird and Wildlife Trail should be aware of the potential for downed trees as well as flooded or washed out roadways. Do not attempt to drive through floodwaters.

Facilities may be closed as conditions dictate.

For more information, please continue to monitor the DGIF website and Facebook page on a regular basis.

If you have questions and concerns, please feel free to call DGIF at 804-367-1000.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
