In Case of Emergency...

Virginia, and more specifically Hampton Roads, is so accustomed to severe weather that many residents don't even give the threat a second thought. However a less than glowing report on the Commonwealth's capacity to handle a large scale evacuation might give many Hampton Roads residents pause when making preparations for this year's hurricane season. 
On today's HearSay,
we'll consider the report's findings, analyze the logistics of a large-scale evacuation, and discuss how local low-lying cities are preparing for the worst.

Scheduled Guests:

Bob Spieldenner -
Director of Public Affairs, Virginia Department of Emergency Management
vaemergency.gov

Hui-Shan Walker -  Emergency Management Coordinator, City of Hampton
hampton.gov/eoc

James Redick - Director, Norfolk Department of Emergency Preparedness and Response
