CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has issued a statewide advisory for officials to make preparations as Hurricane Ida moves inland.
According to the National Weather Service, the potential for heavy rainfall and flooding will increase Tuesday and Wednesday in West Virginia as Ida’s remnants track to the northeast from the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Justice says the state is ready to provide resources should flooding or other weather-related incidents occur.
The weather service will conduct daily briefings with state leaders and emergency management personnel this week.
