Roadways closed at 11:30 p.m.: Midtown Tunnel; Hampton Boulevard just north of ODU campus; numerous streets in downtown Norfolk; many railroad
underpasses (although Hampton Boulevard underpass was open).
Norfolk police say water remains high and roads are impassable for most vehicles at points on Granby Street and Llewellyn Avenue north of Brambleton Avenue and on Brambleton Avenue near the Hague. East-west passage on 38th Street and 26th Street was also blocked.
Bill Quinn, ODU interim police chief, said his officers were reporting some receding of water following high tide at 10:15. "But it's going down very slowly, and we are recommending that ODU personnel sit tight for an hour or so. There is no road we can direct them to that we know for sure will allow them to proceed home safely."
