REISTERSTOWN, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Gov. Martin O'Malley says Hurricane Sandy will claim lives in Maryland.

O'Malley said Monday morning that the forecast has worsened for the state, which will now see some of the hurricane's most intense winds.

O'Malley is urging all Marylanders to stay off the roads for the next 36 hours. He said, "There will be people who die and are killed in this storm." He says the state is "right in the crosshairs" of the hurricane, which is expected to sit over Maryland for more than a full day.

The Democratic governor also says flooding from the Chesapeake Bay could be worse than expected because of winds pushing water up into the bay. He compared the anticipated damage to Hurricane Gloria in 1985 or even Hurricane Agnes in 1972.

Maryland residents in needed of a shelter are asked to visit this website or text "Shelter" and your Zip Code to 43362.
