City to open shelter at Landstown High School

VIRGINIA BEACH — The city will open an emergency shelter at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Landstown High School located at 2001 Concert Drive to help residents who have been affected by recent flooding, which is primarily in the southern portion of the city.

Travel routes in that area are limited; Princess Anne Road south of Red Mill is the best route, according to a news release from the city.

People who come to the shelter should bring food, medicine, bedding and entertainment for children. The shelter will provide bottled water and medical supervision.

Virginia Beach Sheriff’s deputies will provide a secure environment. Prohibited items include: Tobacco, alcohol, drugs, other illegal substances, pets (except service animals), lighters, matches, weapons of any kind (guns, knives, chains, etc.).

“The excessive rain combined with the south wind tides are causing the flooding issues in the southern areas of the city,” said City Manager Dave Hansen. “People who live in the area are familiar with how the water impacts their properties so they can decide whether sheltering in place or evacuating to Landstown High School is their best course of action.”
