I am declaring a state of emergency and mobilizing members of the Maryland National Guard ahead of the impending winter storm, which is expected to bring several inches of snowfall to most of the state and up to 12 inches to the lower Eastern Shore.
The State Highway Administration has completed pre-treatment of roads and highways across the state.
We urge Marylanders to take this winter storm seriously, especially residents on the Eastern Shore, where we are anticipating blizzard-like conditions.
Stay off the roads tonight for your own safety, and so that the crews and first responders can do their jobs.
We will continue to monitor this winter storm closely, and provide updates as it progresses.
