Gov. Hogan Urging Caution Ahead of Overnight Storms

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Ahead of the severe weather expected across the area through the overnight hours of Sunday into Monday, Gov. Larry Hogan issued a statement, urging Maryland residents take caution.

The National Weather Service is predicting severe storms across the region. The agency says the mid-Atlantic region is at risk for flooding, damaging winds, tornadoes, hail, and lightning storms every year; but, Maryland is particularly prone to flooding as well as hailstorms and even tornadoes. 

With this in mind, Gov. Hogan is urging caution.

“I am asking all Marylanders to pay close attention to the updated weather forecasts for this evening and overnight,” said Gov. Hogan in a statement. “The National Weather Service is predicting severe storms, high wind gusts, and the potential for isolated tornadoes across the state. Residents should take every possible precaution, and stay indoors away from windows during thunderstorms. It is especially critical to make sure that emergency alerts are turned on in your mobile device settings.”

Some safety tips during severe weather include things like not driving through areas where you can't see the road during flooding. Authorities also ask you stay indoors in the event of strong winds, a severe thunderstorm warning or a tornado warning.

According to the governor's office, the state has had nearly 100 tornadoes in the last decade.

    The 12th annual event is expected to bring in thousands of people, so Dirato recommends getting to the 17th street area as early as possible to get a good spot.
