NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Up to 10 inches of snow has fallen in Virginia's coastal region and more is expected.

The National Weather Service says 10 inches of snow was reported Wednesday morning in a Portsmouth neighborhood and Willoughby Spit, a peninsula near Naval Station Norfolk.

Snow totals in other localities include 5 to 7 inches in Virginia Beach, 4 to 7 inches in Chesapeake and 3 to 6 inches in Hampton.

Residents are urged to stay off the roads. The Virginia Department of Transportation says road conditions in the region are moderate to severe. Major portions of roadway are covered with snow or ice.

Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach have all declared states of emergency. The move allows them to seek reimbursements for storm-related costs.
