Mayor Bowser cancels state of emergency

WASHINGTON, D.C. – D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has cancelled the state of emergency order she previously issued ahead of Hurricane Florence.

As forecasts predict Florence will have an insignificant impact on the District, Bowser and the Secretary of the District of Columbia, Lauren Vaughan, rescinded the declaration of public emergency on Wednesday.

The DMV’s effects from Florence will be periods of rain from the far outer rain bands. These bands will occur anytime from Wednesday evening through Saturday.

When the remnant of Florence actually departs next week, a second batch of rain from the system will be possible.
