Urban Search and Rescue, VA-TF1 Update


Team members continued today surveying flooded areas.  Working with the South Carolina Air National Guard, crews conducted several hours of aerial assessments.

Crews identified areas affected by the flooding and identified areas that will likely be affected by the rising flood waters and high tides. They also identified routes of travel into these affected areas.

Personnel also continue to staff swift water boats prepared to respond to any requests for assistance.

The team maintains their state of readiness as rivers continue to crest with the high-tide.
