Hurricane Ian Impacts York County Operations
York County staff continue to monitor the track and potential impact of Hurricane Ian this weekend and into early next week. Due to the forecast, the Yorktown Wine Festival scheduled for tomorrow (10/1) has been postponed to November 13. Tickets will be honored on the rescheduled date. Additional information is available online. In addition, several of the County’s parks are either closed or have limited field access. Visitors are asked to check the RainoutLine for park status (also by phone to 757-890-3501). This evening’s Skate, Rattle, and Roll program is cancelled. Due to the potential for coastal flooding with this storm, the lots at the McReynolds Athletic Complex and Chisman Creek Park have been opened for the parking of vehicles (i.e. RVs, boats, trailers, trucks, etc.). Residents are asked not to park vehicles at County school sites. As a reminder, there is no Market Days scheduled for this weekend. Market Days returns next Saturday (10/8) with the Fall Festival. As information becomes available throughout severe weather, updates will be posted on the website and Facebook page.
