NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - After a winter storm produced strong winds, rain and tidal flooding Wednesday, communities across the area are beginning the cleanup process.
The National Weather Service issued a Coastal Warning for the Hampton Roads region until 7 a.m. Friday. Norfolk saw downed trees and several areas were flooded.
Residents began cleaning up their yards Thursday morning after the waters receded.
Eugenie Blang, who lives in Colonial Place, spent Thursday doing yard work. Her home neighbors the Lafayette River. Her yard was littered with leaves and branches.
Thursday's high tide flooding made into her garage and stopped short of her front step.
"When you have water coming in the house that's the total nightmare," Blang said.
According to Sewells Point tides, which are a good indicator for all of Hampton Roads, the minor flood threshold is 4.5 feet. Tides will be above that Thursday, Friday and Saturday during times of high tide.
Anyone who may live in a flood zone should move their vehicles. Do not attempt to drive in any flooded roadway.
