CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Starting Wednesday, Maryland is set to experience higher than average tides known as "king tides." Just the sound of that makes Wayne Warner of Cambridge cringe, but he said at least he was warned.
"We'll see what the heck is going to go on now, but I am glad to have heard something," said Warner.
Water Street in Cambridge is always at risk to flood when high tide occurs. Police barriers that are used to block of the street are still left out from the last time it flooded and people along Water Street are hoping those barriers stay on the sidewalk over the next few days.
Patricia Hurley, who lives on Water Street, said even when it is flooded people drive through anyway and that makes matters worse.
"When they come through here, even though it's blocked, they keep riding through it," Hurley said. "Some of them ride through water this high and it washes underneath of my house and it also makes every flower in the yard do this."
Years ago, Hurley's house received some upgrades to prevent flooding but the new additions haven't done any good.
"When they did this street and pretended that they were going to fix everything, they put this brick around here and what does the water do? It comes right on in and underneath my house and I have to pump it out," said Hurley.
But if flooding ensues, residents like Warner said they will be ready.
"I will imagine that we will probably move the cars around or at least get them in a position where I can move them," said Warner.
