This has to be the worst storm I have seen flooding wise, since I moved to Virginia Beach in the late 1970's. A strong Northeaster, remnants of TS Ida, pounded Virginia Beach from November 11th through November 13th, 2009. Massive tidal flooding occurred in the Lynnhaven River Basin along with endless heavy rain, winds up to 70 mph, and unprecedented Chesapeake Bay wave action. This combination led to the worst storm in years.
Bubba's Crab House was substantially flooded. Surf's up at Chick's Oyster Bar
