Flooding on streets in Norfolk and Virginia Beach is just one of the effects of Hurricane Dorian Friday.

There were also reports of widespread power outages, downed trees and power line.

Pre-storm preparations conducted by personnel on Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story ensured the installation weathered the storm of Hurricane Dorian with minimal impact to the base, officials said.
