Virginia is still in a state of emergency due to flooding and power outages caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida.

Jeff Caldwell, with the state's department of transportation, says more than 200 roads in Virginia are still closed due to high water. He says weather is expected to improve tonight, and tomorrow, new roads may flood as water from this week's rain makes its way down tributaries toward the ocean.

Gov. Tim Kaine, who declared a state of emergency on Thursday, says he'll have a better idea of storm damage by Saturday afternoon. "The flood surges in some parts of Hampton Roads, were significant," says Kaine. "I'll be touring that area tomorrow to get a sense of how significant the damage is."

Kaine says the storm mostly damaged private property rather than state infrastructure.
