Governor Larry Hogan Signs Executive Order Declaring State of Emergency for Eastern Shore, Southern Maryland
Order Issued in Anticipation of Tropical Storm Hermine for Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, Worcester, Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s Counties
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today signed an Executive Order declaring a state of emergency in Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, Worcester, Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s Counties beginning Friday, September 2 in anticipation of heavy rains, strong winds, and potential flooding associated with Tropical Storm Hermine. The Executive Order will allow the state to efficiently coordinate support and provide additional assistance to those counties.
“While the path of Tropical Storm Hermine remains uncertain, this state of emergency will ensure that resources and support are readily available if flooding and other damage does occur,” said Governor Hogan. “I strongly encourage Marylanders to pay close attention to this storm system and, if appropriate, to start preparing for potential flooding or any other possible hazards.”
The Hogan administration has directed state agencies to stand ready to respond to the effects of this storm, including the Maryland Emergency Management Agency. Rain, wind, and localized flooding may continue throughout the weekend and into early next week.
