Local forecast have indicated that the city of Richmond may be impacted by a strong line of severe thunderstorms this afternoon. As a result, all branches of City libraries will close today at 2:30 p.m. Richmond Animal Care and Control, located at 1600 Chamberlayne Avenue, will close today at 3 p.m.

Residents are encouraged to review their emergency supply kits or prepare one if they have not already done so. Emergency supply kits should include essential supplies that will last at least three days. Supply kits should include a hand-cranked or battery-powered radio and extra batteries, non-perishable food and water, toiletries, flashlights, a first aid kit and medications. Also, include items needed for infants, seniors, and pets. You may want to keep a second kit in your car in the event you must travel during inclement weather.

The City asks that residents remain home during this weather event and offers the following safety recommendations:
If you do have to drive, drive cautiously and decrease speed;
Have a cell phone with a full charge with you;
Do not connect your generator directly to your home’s wiring or house your generator inside your home. Connecting a portable electric generator directly to your household wiring can be deadly to you and others. A generator that is directly connected to your home’s wiring may ‘back feed’ onto the power lines connected to your home

For up-to-date information and additional instructions from the City of Richmond during this weather event, please visit, follow the City on Twitter @CityRichmondVA, and stay tuned to local radio and television stations.
