Disaster survivor day workshop

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - We haven't had a major snow storm yet, this season, but it's never too early to prepare.

More than 1,400 people met with their local emergency, health and weather officials for a free Disaster Survivor Day.

Getting that emergency plan is a good idea since central Virginia is no stranger to natural disasters.
