City of Norfolk, VA Public Safety
Monday October 5th, 2015 :: 11:28 a.m. EDT


City Operating Status for Monday 10-5-15

Please be advised the City has declared a 2pm early release to allow staff safe commute home before the rising tide which peaks at 4:18pm.  We are expecting 5.7' at the crest which is very close to the 6' experienced Friday.  As we saw during Friday's tide, many areas throughout the city became islands and cars were trapped or stalled in flood waters.

Along with costly repairs which could be a result from driving in flood waters, there are health risks associated with playing in the water.  Go to for details.

For all updates and information, please go to the City's website at

Thank you!
