Evacuation Order Lifted

The evacuation order of New Alexandria and Belle View is lifted as of 6 p.m., today, Sunday, Sept. 21, 2003. Persons who left their homes because of flooding caused by Hurricane Isabel can again occupy their dwellings.

Persons returning to their dwellings may find a colored sticker on their building.

• If you have a green sticker on your home, it is safe to re-renter.
• If you have a yellow sticker on your home, there is some damage but the home is okay to re-enter and in livable condition.
• If you have a red sticker on your home, you are not allowed to re-enter. The property has been deemed uninhabitable and no one is allowed to enter the premises. Should you have a red sticker on your home, please call the Department of Public Works and Environmental Services Operations Center at 703-324-8355, TTY 711 for additional information.

Some residents and business owners may find they need to make repairs to their dwellings. Permits will be required to make the necessary repairs. To assist residents and eliminate the need to travel to the Government Center, a permit/information center will be open Monday, Sept. 22, at the Mount Vernon RECenter, located at 2017 Belle View Boulevard. DPWES staff will be available at the RECenter from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to help citizens work through the permit process.

Because this is a disaster event you can begin the repairs before the permit is issued, however, a permit must be obtained to complete the process. You are encouraged to contact your insurance company before making repairs to determine what types of damage documentation is needed to process your claim.
