Md. Gov: don't go to Ocean City during Earl
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is advising travelers not to drive to or from Ocean City during the height of stormy weather from Hurricane Earl.
O'Malley (D) said Wednesday during a Board of Public Works meeting that Earl is tracking about 150 miles to 200 miles off the Maryland coast. He said officials expect there will be a fair amount of beach damage and erosion.
Earl isn't expected to reach Maryland until about 1 a.m. Friday. O'Malley said Friday likely will be a bad day for driving, but he noted that many forecasters are expecting good weather for Labor Day weekend after Earl passes.
O'Malley also said it's unlikely Ocean City will need to be evacuated.
