National Guard helping W. Md. cope with heavy snow

February 28, 2010

The National Guard has 40 people working to help officials in Western Maryland cope with a snowstorm that has battered the region. Heavy snow and blizzard conditions have hit Garrett County, where officials have declared a state of emergency. National Guard Lt. Col. Charles Kohler says two Humvees and two other heavy trucks have been sent to the area. He says the vehicles will be used to help local emergency officials that may not be able to get through the snow. For instance, the trucks can take people to hospitals for medical care or take firefighters to places their vehicles can't reach.
