ANNAPOLIS, Md. — As Southern California grapples with the aftermath of its largest earthquake in two decades, as well as the successive aftershocks, leaders from outside the state are offering support.

Governor Larry Hogan joined that chorus, extending a hand to California Governor Gavin Newsom. On Twitter, Hogan said he contacted the Golden State's chief executive to convey Maryland's readiness to provide all the support it can to “rattled communities across Southern California.”

“I reached out to @CAgovernor @GavinNewsom this morning to offer any and all support that Maryland can provide following yesterday's earthquake that rattled communities across Southern California,” Hogan said in his tweets. “We are thinking of the many families affected by this, and we are very grateful to the first responders on the ground.”
