Governor McAuliffe has declared a state of emergency for the state of Virginia ahead of a winter storm that's expected to bury some areas in 12 inches of snow.
The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning Friday for Southeast Virginia, including Hampton, Poquoson, Norfolk, Virginia Beach and parts of the Eastern Shore.
A winter storm warning was also issued shortly before 4 a.m. Friday for all of Hampton Roads and Northeast North Carolina. Both warnings will take effect from 10 p.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Saturday.
