ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — The state of emergency is lifted across Maryland, Gov. Larry Hogan announced Friday morning.
The state of emergency was enacted on Jan. 22 as the blizzard of 2016 barreled towards Maryland.
“The entire state of Maryland was impacted by the most significant and widespread storm our state has ever experienced, but together – thanks to the efforts of so many state employees, members of our law enforcement and National Guard, emergency responders, highways workers, and volunteers – we responded effectively and efficiently,” said Governor Hogan. “Most importantly, I want to thank the people of Maryland, who showed tremendous patience and resilience both responding to and recovering from this historic storm.”
