Sandy Not yet Ready to Leave Virginia

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- President Barack Obama has declared an emergency for Virginia as a result of Superstorm Sandy.

Obama's declaration authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help state and local authorities respond to the storm.

Virginia Department of Emergency Management spokesman Bob Spieldenner says officials will begin assessing damage in coastal areas Tuesday morning.

Northern Virginia is still being hit with rain and wind, while southwestern counties are bracing for snow.
