ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ/AP)— As the pressure drops, winds are picking up in Annapolis.
Alex DeMetrick reports on the conditions in our state capital.
At this point, a lot of storm surge is not expected and power outages are at a minimum. But there is a lot of wind.
There aren’t a lot of boats on the harbor, as the city of Annapolis announced that anyone who enters the harbor at this point are on their own. Annapolis is not liable for any damage.
The city is also announcing in advance that all government offices will be closed.
Mayor Joshua Cohen says government offices will be closed Tuesday, with the exception of essential employees. He’s also urging all residents of the state capital to stay off the road.
There’ll also be no garbage and recycling pickup on Tuesday.
Anyone who attempted to pay their utility bill at City Hall while offices were closed will be granted a grace period.
