Smith Island Evacuations Under Way

Posted:
SMITH ISLAND, Md.- Somerset County Emergency Management officials have announced that Maryland Natural Resources Police will be assisting in the evacuation of Smith Island this afternoon.
 
Starting at 2 p.m. and again at 5 p.m., you can meet the NRP boat at the Tylerton dock. They will be at the Ewell dock at approximately 2:30 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m. Anyone who does not already have a place to stay should call emergency services at (410) 651-0707 or notify the boat captain when they board.
 
As the weather is bringing strong winds we cannot assure any transportation after this evening's run.
 
Should there be more people evacuating than the boat can hold, additional trips will be made by turning around immediately upon disembarking of the first evacuees.
