Caroline County Issues Update on Hurricane Sandy Aftermath

Posted:

DENTON, Md.- Caroline County officials say approximately 20 roads are out due to down downed trees or power lines. Another nine roads are out due to high water or washouts. According to officials, public works crews are out and addressing issues as quickly as possible.

In other storm-related county news:

  • Everyone has left the emergency shelter at Goldsboro Fire Company and that shelter is now closed. Officials said there are still about 30 people in the emergency shelter at Colonel Richardson High School.  Power is still out to a large part of Federalsburg, so most people in the shelter are remaining in place until they can confirm power has been restored to their homes. 
  • A boil water advisory has been issued for residents of Jonestown who are on the community system due to low water system pressure caused by the power outages.  It will be lifted as soon as the system passes safety tests.  
  • Gov. Martin O'Malley has announced changes to early voting.  Voting will be held Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 a.m.- 9 p.m. In Caroline County, the Emergency Operations Center and early voting share space.  When the storm became imminent, officials said they had to make changes to the setup that resulted in longer wait times for voters.
