AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage has announced that all State offices will be closing today at 2 p.m. due to a severe winter storm covering the state.

“I urge everybody who is driving to commute safely to your destination,” said Governor LePage. “Stopping safely on snow or ice during inclement weather takes extra time and distance. Drive slowly so you can adjust to changing road conditions. Please remember to keep a safe distance behind other vehicles, and give plow trucks plenty of room to operate.”
