Flexible plans for Virginians as Hermine approaches

Virginians are bracing themselves for some heavy rain from Hermine.

ALEXANDRIA, VA (WUSA9) - On Friday, in Old Town people flocked to restaurants and shops without a rain drop in sight.

But most everyone knew the clear sky wasn’t going to last all weekend.

"I live in Old Town so I'm going to hang around here, but on Sunday I'm going to watch the Yankees and the Orioles at Camden yards," said Ken Zak.

"I spent a lot of money for our tickets so I'm kind of worried now."

From Florida to South Carolina, tropical storm Hermine is bringing heavy rain and soon enough it'll be in the Commonwealth.

Governor Terry McAuliffe has already declared a state of emergency and warned Virginians to "prepare for the possibility of damaging winds, downed trees, power outages and flooding" and "to limit travel as the severe weather arrives."

The areas looking at the most severe rain are closer to the coast, and most people in Northern Virginia aren't overly concerned.

"I'm retired - it doesn't bother me," said one person.

"What will be, will be," added another. "We're here from Texas for a wedding so what will be, will be!"
