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.
