CRISFIELD, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Maryland officials say they are working to evacuate about 150 people from a development in Crisfield.

Ed McDonough, a spokesman for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, said police got the call shortly before 3 p.m. at the Somers Cove Apartments (Crisfield Housing Authority) in Somerset County.

McDonough said residents became concerned by rising water and called for assistance. He says it does not appear anyone is in imminent danger. McDonough said two boats are being used to get them to higher ground.
