SNOW HILL, Md.- The Worcester County Sheriff's Office and Worcester County Emergency Services are warning travelers that the Maryland State Police snow emergency plan is in effect from now, Monday, March 2, through the Tuesday morning commute.

Parking on state roads and streets designated as snow emergency routes is prohibited. Vehicles abandoned on the roadside for any reason during the winter storm will be subject to immediate tow, according to officials. They said vehicles traveling the roadways should be equipped with all-season radials or snow chains.

Officials strongly urge residents to remain indoors and stay off the roads. They also said roadway travel is highly treacherous due to a mix of falling snow, ice, wind and freezing temperatures.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
