Gov. Hogan to Residents: Monitor Weather, Skip Beach Travel

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — As Maryland prepares to feel more effects from Tropical Storm Hermine, Gov. Larry Hogan is telling residents to closely monitor weather forecasts and not plan travel to the state’s beaches if they aren’t already there.

Hogan said in a statement Saturday afternoon: “Though some uncertainty remains, it is becoming clear that Hermine will affect Maryland with significant rainfall and flooding along the coast.”

Hogan said he had reached out to Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan and agrees with his assessment: “anyone planning to travel to the beach this weekend that has not already departed should stay home until the agenda of the storm are over.”

Hogan encouraged residents to “use common sense and stay safe during this time.”
