SNOW HILL, Md.- Worcester County officials have lifted the state of emergency. All county shelters closed Tuesday afternoon, and residents who evacuated in the wake of Hurricane Sandy are authorized to return to their homes.

Early voting will take place in the third floor training room at the Worcester County Government Center, located at 1 West Market Street in Snow Hill, on Wednesday, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

When traveling, be advised that many county roadways remain impassable due to standing water or damage sustained during the hurricane. Citizens should exercise extreme caution.

Several of the larger roads that are impassable include the southern section of U.S. Rt. 113 south of Snow Hill, which remains closed in both directions, with high water covering the road in several sections. MD Rt. 346 near Hall Road is closed, as the bridge has been washed out. Flood waters cover the roadway at the MD Rt. 12 Bridge in Snow Hill. Standing water remains on many other side roads as well.

Crews remain out in force throughout the county clearing debris from roadways. Utility workers continue their efforts to restore electricity to areas that lost power during the hurricane.
