RICHMOND, Va. (AP/WBOC)- Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell have both declared states of emergency ahead of Hurricane Sandy's approach.
O'Malley said Friday the declaration gives the state flexibility to activate the Maryland National Guard and provide assistance to local emergency managers.
Heavy rain and high winds are expected to reach the Maryland coast Saturday night. Forecasters predict several days of foul weather including the possibility of snow in the western Maryland mountains.
McDonnell said his declaration is a precautionary measure to ensure that Virginia is ready for any potential impacts from the storm. He added that the projected long duration of the storm has the potential to produce significant flooding, extensive power outages, as well as snowfall in part of Virginia.
