Waiting for Hurricane Sandy
The non-emergency staff here at the National Archives have the day off, in fact the entire Federal Government in our region is closed. We’re hunkered down at home waiting for Hurricane Sandy to hit the Washington, DC area. Hoping trucks like these are not in our future — or yours. Stay safe and we’ll see you after the storm!

Both Louisa and neighboring Des Moines counties have been designated as eligible for federal aid. Oakville was spared in the great flood of 1993, but this time its fate is in question.
