Like many of you, The Trust is closely monitoring Hurricane Florence. While our corporate office is not in the direct impact zone of Hurricane Florence, we are expecting inclement, possibly severe, weather as the storm moves along the East Coast. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has already declared a state of emergency and warned of potentially “historic” flooding and power outages. While we hope Hurricane Florence doesn’t impact our operations, The Trust is taking steps to ensure our day-to-day business operations are not interrupted.
