Top 4 Messages for Loudoun Residents During the Blizzard

Updated Sunday, January 24, 2016: All Loudoun County facilities are closed on Sunday, January 24, 2016.

Loudoun County officials continue to monitor the evolving weather and road conditions. All Loudoun County facilities are closed on Saturday, January 23, 2016. The National Weather Service reports more than 12 inches snow fell overnight and the blizzard warning remains in effect until 6:00 a.m. Sunday morning, January 24, 2016.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is out in full force. Updated road conditions can be viewed online 511virginia.org

Here the top 4 messages for all of us to know during the blizzard:

1. Stay Off the Roads. State Police and VDOT report that road conditions across Loudoun County are “severe.” Please do not considering driving today for the following reasons:

  • Even 4-wheel drive vehicles and large plow trucks are having trouble getting around—in some cases they’re getting stuck! Don't risk it.
  • VDOT plow drivers can get their job done more easily without vehicles on the roads.
  • Don’t create an unnecessary call to public safety. Many roads are not passable - you will get stuck and need help; Sheriff’s Office and Fire & Rescue personnel are needed for true emergencies. In addition, this weather is likely to delay responses.

2. Be Prepared.

3. Stay Safe.

4. Stay Informed.Get regular updates on the process of the blizzard by watching local news reports or visiting the National Weather Service’s website. Loudoun County will keep you up-to-date along with VDOT and others. We’ve posted links to all the information sources you need at www.loudoun.gov/winterMore...
