Maryland Declares Emergency Ahead of Storm

Gov.Martin O’Malley declared a state of emergency yesterday as the storm threatened significant flooding and widespread power outages when it arrives in Maryland sometime tomorrow night.

The Category 3 storm is predicted to produce wind gusts of up to 70 miles per hour and pound the region with up to 8 inches of rain – with conditions expected to be far worse along the coastline.

“This is not a storm to be taken lightly,” O’Malley said. “People who live in coastal areas should take every precaution,” he said. The state of emergency designation activates the state National Guard.
