PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- The Somerset County Commissioners are encouraging any county resident looking for information regarding sheltering, food or how to begin the recovery process to call 211 for information.

The commissioners said 211 operators will be able to refer residents essential services to assist in the recovery after Hurricane Sandy. Residents are asked not to call 911 unless they are in need of immediate help from police, fire or ambulance assistance.

According to the commissioners, resources are being deployed to Somerset County from various organizations throughout the state of Maryland. The Maryland Department of Human Resources, Maryland Emergency Management and FEMA are currently in the county coordinating resources to help those affected by the storm.
