Maryland Governor Declares State of Emergency Regarding Hurricane Sandy

Governor Martin O’Malley this morning signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency for all Maryland counties as the state continues to monitor Hurricane Sandy and its potential impact. The declaration gives the state flexibility to activate the Maryland National Guard and provide assistance to local emergency managers.

"As Hurricane Sandy makes its way north, I urge all Maryland residents to prepare for extreme weather," said O'Malley.  "I urge all Marylanders to review their family emergency plans, make sure their emergency supplies like batteries and water are fully stocked and to stay informed."
