O'Malley declares storm emergency
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has declared a state of emergency in preparation for Hurricane Earl’s expected brush along the state’s coast Friday.
O’Malley is warning residents and tourists to take precautions, including not attempting to drive to or from Ocean City during the storm, should forecasts for high winds and rain remain in effect.
The emergency declaration activates the state’s National Guard to provide assistance if necessary. It also allows the governor to suspend state statutes and regulations if needed to protect public safety.
