Residents in New Kent will have access to a cooling station and potable water, as the county continues to recover from weekend storms.
New Kent declared a local state of emergency Tuesday, which allows the county to receive additional resources and support.
The cooling station will be open Wednesday at Fire Station #1 located at 4315 Courthouse Road.
Citizens in need of shelter or with non-emergency post storm related questions may contact the Emergency Operation Center at (804) 966-9677. For emergencies please dial 911.
The New Kent High School Shelter is currently closed, but on standby and will open if there are any requests for use.
