ONLEY, Va.- Emergency management officials are advising all residents to prepare for high winds and extended high level tidal flooding as Hurricane Sandy approaches the Eastern Shore.

Accomack County residents are under a voluntary evacuation order, which is in effect at this time. There are no emergency shelters open at present in the county.

Emergency evacuation shelters will be open 2 p.m. Sunday. The shelters are Arcadia Middle School and Nandua Middle School.

If you are planning on evacuating to the emergency shelter, bring a 3-day supply of the following items: sleeping linen, food supplies and medications.

Residents in low lying areas prone to flooding and mobile homes should seek shelter on higher ground. Residents should also prepare for loss of electrical power associated to high wind conditions.
