    NCR and BALT evac routes

    There was some discussion in my local area about expecting regional urban areas to flood our area of WV in the event of serious problems in the cities. Does your local govt have a plan to deal with this influx?

    There are maps of evac routes from the NCR and BALT areas at these links:

    Options to increase evac capabilities to the West of the NCR are discussed here:

    "Identification of Routes for Study: FHWA reviewed the areas considered outside and to the west of the NCR and NHS routes in the following counties:

    Virginia: Albemarle, Alleghany, Augusta, Bath, Clarke, Culpeper, Fauquier, Frederick, Greene, Highland, Madison, Nelson, Orange, Page, Rappahannock, Rockbridge, Rockingham, Shenandoah and Warren.
    Maryland: Allegany, Frederick, Garrett, and Washington.
    West Virginia: Barbour, Clarksburg, Grant, Greenbrier, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Marion, Monongalia, Pendleton, Pocahontas, Preston, Randolph, Tucker, and Upshur."

    DC has its own plan. The orange routes on this map will all be outbound in an evacuation.

    DC has a planning tool to plan an exit along evac routes from the city. This a good pre-planning aid, but don't expect to use it during an emergency.
