REISTERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — State officials have scheduled a briefing at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency to talk about superstorm Sandy.

The briefing in Reisterstown is scheduled for 10:30 a.m.

Blizzard warnings are in effect in for Garrett and Allegany counties.

Widelski also says tidal flooding is expected in the Chesapeake Bay, with storm surges from 2 to 4 feet, primarily Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night.
