MAINE EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
Maine Winter Storm Heading Our Way
December 26, 2012
AUGUSTA, MAINE – The National Weather Service has posted Winter Storm Warnings for much of the State of Maine. Coastal splash over as well as minor beach erosion is also possible later tomorrow for coastal Cumberland and York Counties. The storm is expected to intensify overnight, and dangerous conditions will continue into most of the day Thursday and into the evening. “This could make for some difficult and potentially dangerous commuting with the increase in holiday traffic,” said Rob McAleer, Director of Maine Emergency Management Agency.
The Maine Emergency Management Agency joins the NWS Gray and Caribou Forecast Offices in urging all Mainers and visitors to stay off the roads, pay close attention to weather warnings, and stay safe.
