Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration got a security briefing from the FBI ahead of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Richard McFeely, who is the special agent in charge of the FBI's Baltimore division, talked to the governor and cabinet members on Tuesday in Annapolis during a briefing that was closed to the news media.
Before McFeely's presentation, O'Malley told reporters Maryland has been working over the past decade to become better prepared in all aspects of protecting the public from either terrorist attacks or extreme weather conditions.
The governor said there are no known specific threats. However, it's important for everyone to be at a heightened level of awareness as the nation approaches the anniversary, he said.
