Queen Anne's County Issues Storm Advisory

Posted:

CENTREVILLE, Md.- The Queen Anne's County Department of Emergency Services says that as Hurricane Sandy approaches, everyone should finish their preparations by sundown on Sunday.

Officials said weather conditions will deteriorate rapidly Sunday night, with sustained winds of 35 to 45 mph and gusts up to 65 mph through Tuesday morning. Additionally, officials said the county can expect up to 8 inches of rain during that period. Minor to moderate tidal flooding is expected through Tuesday afternoon.

People living in low lying, flood prone areas should consider securing your property and relocating today to friends or family on higher ground until conditions improve. As the weather deteriorates, remain indoors. If you have to venture out, do not drive through flooded roadways and stay away from any downed wires. As always, if you have an emergency, call 911.
