Updates: Tropical Storm Ida impacting West Virginia

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — As Hurricane Ida continues to track north, Gov. Jim Justice has issued a State of Preparedness for all 55 counties in West Virginia ahead of the remnants.

Justice’s office said following the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service the proclamation was necessary. The remnants are predicted to reach the Mountain State by Tuesday evening and then tracking northeast through Thursday.

“Due to the magnitude of Hurricane Ida and the rainfall amounts predicted for West Virginia, I have ordered our state agencies to prepare to respond immediately if necessary,” Justice said in a statement released on Sunday. “We’re ready to provide all possible resources should flooding or other weather incidents occur.”
