TOWSON, MD (October 10, 2018) - As Hurricane Michael makes landfall along the Florida Panhandle, AAA advises local travelers to plan ahead, keep an eye on weather conditions and put safety first. “While the storm is not expected to have a significant impact on weather in Maryland, AAA urges travelers to check with their travel agent and travel providers for cancellation policies and possible itinerary changes, especially if they have plans to travel south to Florida, Georgia or the Carolinas,” said Ragina Cooper Averella, Public and Government Affairs Manager at AAA Mid-Atlantic. “Motorists could also notice a temporary spike in gas prices should Hurricane Michael disrupt oil production and refining in the Gulf of Mexico,” Averella added.
AAA Hurricane Preparedness Tips
"Leading up to Hurricane Michael, gas supplies have likely tightened in the Gulf Coast portion of the Florida panhandle and surrounding areas impacted by the hurricane," said Averella. "The severity of the storm, however, will determine access to fuel supply and impact on gas prices in Florida and Georgia. Current forecasts suggest the hurricane is not likely to affect critical Gulf Coast infrastructure (refineries, pipelines). However, heavy rain and high winds could affect refineries in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana," she added.
