Officials said 136 units at Somers Cove Apartments, a public housing community, were flooded.
 
Federal housing authorities said they are working with local and state leaders to find similar housing for the 278 people who were displaced.
 
A community center is offering a temporary shelter of cots, food and water, though a countywide shelter at Washington High School in Princess Anne has closed.
 
Ed McDonough, a spokesman for the state emergency management agency, said that no single town suffered as much damage as Crisfield. He said he expects Somerset County, where Crisfield is located, to receive a federal disaster declaration.
