The Virginia Department of Transportation is also preparing for the worst, in regards to hurricane Sandy.

Crews from our area have been sent to help in Hampton Roads.

Those crews will help put signs back up after the storm.

Sandy Myers with VDOT said the remaining crews are ready to tackle storm damage in the valley.

She said they have done snow drive runs in the past few months.

They have also cleared drains and pipes of any debris.

She said they have prepared for every possible scenario.

VDOT also has contractors on call in case they need an extra hand.

" Our crews are ready to go. They know what to do whether they have to plow the snow, whether they have to help with tree removal, debris removal and of course the flooding," Myers said.

Myers advises drivers to avoid roads with a lot of water.
