Md. Governor O'Malley Visits Crisfield FEMA Center

Posted:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Governor Martin O'Malley made a trip to Crisfield on Thurs. morning Dec. 20, to visit the FEMA operations center.  During a press conference the governor thanked town, county and state officials for their efforts.

O'Malley says he could not just allow things to stay as they were in Somerset County.  That's why he pushed for the reassessment. "We weren't going to give up I mean we couldn't give up. Not after looking in the eyes of the families here in Somerset an Crisfield that we knew were devastated  We have a responsibility as a people really to look out for one another and that's what defines our goodness as a people."

So far, FEMA officials say more than 500 people have registered for assistance and more than $350,000 has been given already to the people.  FEMA says not even half of the inspections have been completed so there is still more work to do.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
