Food, water available as Irene damage estimates roll in

Hurricane Irene inflicted an estimated $605,000 in damage to 90 homes, a manufactured home, five businesses and a church, according to a Gloucester County tally.

The storm also caused an estimated $1.4 million in crop losses, according to a Virginia Cooperative Extension survey.

The Salvation Army will be providing water and bag lunches at Rick's Country Store on Ark Road in Sassafras from noon to 2 p.m. on Wednesday.

There will be no curbside collection of storm debris in Gloucester, a county spokeswoman said.

The Middle Peninsula Landfill and Recycling Center, located 10 miles north of Gloucester Court House, will have extended hours on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The landfill is the recommended site for disposal of storm debris, said a county spokeswoman.

Small loads in pickups or trailers can also be taken to the convenience centers around the county that are open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday. Lines are likely to be long at the convenience centers.
