As of Friday morning, Sandbridge Road was reported to be open to all traffic, but the City of Virginia Beach warned that some low-lying areas may still have water on the roadway.

Officials are reminding drivers of these safety tips:

  • If you are driving through any standing water, go slow so as not to push water into people’s homes and businesses
  • Windshield wipers on equals headlights on. It’s the law.
  • If you cannot see the pavement in front of you due to standing water, do not drive through it. You have no idea how deep the water is or what hazards may be unseen. Turn around…don’t drown.
