Maryland Emergency Management Agency has a list of things to do before, during and after a hurricane.
Don’t scramble at the last minute to prepare for Hurricane Florence.
It’s strengthening and forecast to become “a dangerous major hurricane” Monday, potentially causing storm surges at the coast and freshwater flooding, the National Hurricane Center said.
While the exact path of the system is unclear, meteorologists advise residents from South Carolina into the Mid-Atlantic to “closely monitor the progress of Florence, ensure they have their hurricane plan in place, and follow any advice given by local officials.”
Hurricane Florence is forecast to hit the Southeast coast as a major storm later this week. What could it bring to Maryland? Strong winds, heavy rain and flooding and/or storm surge, depending on its track.
