Heavy Rainfall Leads to Major Flooding and Multiple Water Rescues in Queen Anne's County

Posted:
 QUEEN ANNE'S COUNTY, Md. -- Heavy rainfall caused a lot of flooding in Queen Anne's County Tuesday night. As of 11:00 p.m. The National Weather Service reported about ten inches of rain in Queenstown and Grasonville.

The Director of Emergency Services in Queen Anne's County, Kevin Aftung, tells WBOC several roads are washed out and completely under water. He says at least one apartment unit is damaged and the family had to be relocated. He says the American Red Cross is helping the family.

Officials with the Grasonville Volunteer Fire Department say they're seeing three to four feet of water in some areas, and they've responded to numerous water rescues throughout the evening.

They warn residents to stay inside if possible, and if drivers see flooded roads, emergency workers say they should turn around and find another route. Aftung says it won't be clear until Wednesday morning on the exact conditions of the roadways in Queen Anne's County.
