PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Looking for a cost-effective way to get to a hurricane shelter?
Well, there’s good news: Lyft is offering free rides to shelters — up to $15 — through 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
The Virginia Department of Emergency Management said in tweet early Wednesday morning that those seeking a free ride through Lyft can use the code “VAFLORENCE18.”
Several localities across the viewing area have announced shelters ahead of Hurricane Florence.
The powerful Category 4 storm is forecast to make landfall in the Carolinas on Friday — and bringing with it potentially life-threatening storm surge and rainfall.
