To: Wythe County

The waters from Michael are receding and the true damage from the storm is now showing. Roads have been washed out or damaged from moving water. VDOT is working hard to clear all debris and repair the damages that occurred. To find all the areas that VDOT is repairing, visit 511virginia.org or use the 511 app. If you come across an area that needs repair or VDOT’s attention, call 1-800-FOR-ROAD (1-800-367-7623). Please understand that these repairs may take time and VDOT is working hard to complete the repairs in a quick but safe manner.

Wythe County wants to thank its citizens for assisting in keeping everyone safe. Thanks to all the citizens that called neighbors or friends to check on them and make sure people were safe. It takes a community working together to keep everyone safe and it showed yesterday. We ask that you continue to do this as the weather changes over to cooler temperatures. Also, thank you to all the citizens who called in tips on issues in the county yesterday.

Moving forward, continue to be prepared. Visit wytheco.org to learn how to stay prepared year-round. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the more affected areas of the Commonwealth and across the Southeast United States. Thank you and Stay Safe!
