Weather

(WUSA) -- Virginia Task Force 1 has been activated in case it is needed once Hurricane Irene comes ashore.

Fairfax Fire and Rescue Department Capt. Willie Bailey says the urban search and rescue team is gathering in Fairfax Thursday morning. The 76 personnel and four K-9s will first head to Fort Bragg, North Carolina for staging then deploy to wherever they are needed.

In recent years, VATF-1 has responded after the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan.
