Floyd Co Emergency Management Updates

In addition to home damage, please also let us know ASAP if a private bridge has been so damaged or destroyed such that fire or rescue vehicles could NOT get to your house (if there's no alternate way in.) We are not offering or promising help at this time, we are just trying to document needs to make a case to the state that help is needed. Please call 745-9300 or email kholfield@floydcova.org. ...

Did your home have flood damage from Tuesday? (including basement flooding). Or do you know of an area with flood damage to houses? If so, please let us know ASAP. We have to prepare initial damage by this Thursday to the state so they can decide whether to seek federal disaster assistance. Please note only damage to houses count--not to driveways, private bridges, businesses or non-profits. Feel free to call 745-9300 to report it or email me at lmartin@floydcova.org. ...

In case of power outage, please call Appalachian Power Company: 1-800-956-4237. You may want to jot the number down now, due to High Wind Watch starting tonight. It may not take much to knock down some trees given the soggy ground. And, charge your electronics while you can. And if you have a hard-wired phone (not cordless), have it ready as it will likely work even if the cordless or cell phone won't. ... See MoreSee Less

A State of Emergency has been declared in Floyd County and also State-wide by the Governor.  Citizens are encouraged to be weather aware, be prepared with necessary supplies and have plans to seek shelter if evacuation is needed.

Due to the high volume of calls expected in the Dispatch Center this weekend from the impending storms, please limit your calls to 911 to only life threatening situations.

Non-life threatening calls for assistance can be directed to 540/745-9334.

If needed, an emergency shelter will be set up at Station #1 Rescue on Floyd Highway North beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 2, 2015.

Updates will follow tomorrow afternoon.
