Worcester County Officials Anticipate High Water in Flood-Prone Areas

Posted:

SNOW HILL, Md.- Worcester County Emergency Services anticipates high water in flood-prone areas along the coast and bays, based on current winter storm forecasts for the area.

National Weather Service forecasters predict strong winds for this area, with gusts between 50 to 55 mph, which increase the likelihood of downed trees and power lines. Those traveling area roadways through the duration of the storm are urged to exercise caution.

WCES recommends securing any lawn furniture, trash cans or other loose objects that could become flying projectiles, threatening life and property during high winds. Worcester County officials continue to monitor the progress of the winter storm and will provide emergency updates as necessary.
