VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WVEC) — The Virginia Beach-based Urban Search and Rescue Team Virginia Task Force 2 (VA-TF2) is preparing to provide hurricane relief in response to Hurricane Florence.
On Wednesday, crews trained and planned for any assignments in Coastal Virginia. A decision about when and where to deploy has not been made at this time.
