Governor Larry Hogan Rescinds State of Emergency for All Areas of Maryland
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today signed an Executive Order rescinding the state of emergency in the 15 counties and Baltimore City that were at risk for flooding due to recent heavy rain. There are currently no jurisdictions in Maryland under a state of emergency.
“I want to thank the state agencies and emergency personnel that responded to the threat of severe weather this weekend,” Governor Hogan said. “I also want to thank Marylanders for their vigilance during these storms.”
State agencies remain ready to support public safety and emergency management efforts if needed. The Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) will continue to actively monitor the weather and the potential for coastal and tidal flooding with local emergency management partners. Residents can go to MEMA’s website, mema.maryland.gov, to see up-to-date information on weather, traffic, power, and other alerts.
