Governor Hogan Declares State of Emergency in response to heavy rainfall

Governor Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency for parts of Maryland along the Chesapeake Bay, in response to the heavy rainfall and flooding that the region has seen since Friday morning.

Most areas along the Bay, the Potomac River, and the Atlantic Ocean are still under a Coastal Flood Warning, which is expected to last into part of Saturday at the very least.

The Maryland National Guard has stationed soldiers who are on state active duty at the Easton and Salisbury Armories in case they need to respond to any emergencies.
