The Fourth of July three-day holiday weekend got off to an early, and rocky, start Thursday afternoon.

The holiday itself is considered one of the deadliest days on the road, and a tropical storm churning in the Atlantic could make it worse for the over one million holiday travelers in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

AAA estimates a record 1.16 million in the state will travel — the majority by vehicle — for the long weekend.
