O.C. Emergency Personnel Offering Relocation to Shelter During Daylight Hours

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md.- The Town of Ocean City is encouraging those residents and visitors who have chosen not to abide by the mandatory and voluntary evacuation order who want to consider relocating to a shelter, to do so during daylight hours.

Ocean City emergency personnel will assist in transferring citizens to designated shelters before dark. During the height of the storm or during tidal cycles, emergency personnel may not have the ability to respond. Residents who wish to be relocated can call the Town of Ocean City's communications office at (410) 289-8967.

For those citizens choosing not to evacuate, Ocean City Emergency Services advise citizens to shelter in place by remaining where you are for the duration of the storm. At this time the storm is expected to be at its worse between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. today, with estimated sustained winds at 40-50 mph with possible gusts reaching hurricane strength. Approximately 10 inches of rain is expected, which will result in severe flooding in low lying areas when combined with the storm and tidal surges. 

During the storm, the Town of Ocean City will be posting storm related information on various websites, social media outlets, through the GovDelivery system and the television access channel. Citizens are asked to tune into Ocean City's Government Access Channel (4 & 15) for further detailed information or advisories. To subscribe to GovDelivery, visit the "City Wide Alerts" tab on the Town of Ocean City's website at http://oceancitymd.gov . Residents with questions or concerns can contact (410) 289-8967.
