The county is in the process of deactivating its state of emergency, and county government will be open tomorrow. The Board of County Commissioners will hold its meeting Friday. The county’s shelters at Leonardtown High School and Great Mills High School are closed, and the county’s emergency team has been demobilized.

Garrett County could get 30 inches of snow. The snow could disrupt early voting, since early voting will resume until all counties can conduct.
There was a million-gallon sewage spill in Howard County at the head of the Patuxent River. Officials are warning citizens to stay out of the water
