Governor Declares State of Emergency, Closes All State Offices

AUGUSTA – With a severe winter storm bearing down on Maine, Governor Paul R. LePage has declared a State of Emergency and announced that all State offices will be closed today. The storm is expected to bring Winter Storm and Blizzard conditions to all of Maine, as well as coastal flooding to southwest Maine.

“The amount of snow and the high winds, along with blowing and drifting snow, makes this storm dangerous for many Mainers,” said the Governor. “We want everyone to stay off the roads and stay safe.”
