Governor Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency, ahead of a major winter storm expected to hit Maryland and surrounding states on Friday night through Saturday. “Our first and main priority is keeping Marylander’s safe” Hogan said. “To help keep our citizens safe, moments ago I signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency in Maryland which goes into effect at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning.” The Governor also added, “Our entire state is expected to be hit by very severe weather,” Hogan said. “It could take days or even up to a week for them to dig out all of the roads. I ask Marylander’s to be prepared and to be patient in the days ahead.”
