Printer friendly

As of 1030 am Wednesday, October 31, 2012, the local state of emergency in Charles County will be lifted and Charles County Government will resume normal operations. Local officials made the declaration on October 28, 2012 out of an abundance of caution, which ensured the Department of Emergency Services had authority to engage, deploy and coordinate available resources to protect the lives and property of Charles County residents during Hurricane Sandy.

Severe weather information and emergency notices will be posted on the Charles County website (www.CharlesCountyMD.gov), on the county's Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/CharlesCounty), and on the county's government cable station, CCGTV, broadcast on Verizon channel 10 and Comcast channel 95.

Register today for Charles County's Citizen Notification Service (CNS) to receive inclement weather and traffic alerts by e-mail or on your cell phone or pager. To sign up for the free CNS service, visit www.CharlesCountyCNS.com.
