Snow Hill Businesses Drying Out From Storm

SNOW HILL, Md. - The sound of fans blowing through his shop after a flood is something business owner Bill Candy has only dealt with once before.

"Sandy.  We had 16 inches and those are the only two times these rooms have flooded," said Candy.

Candy runs Riverside Auction and says one of the biggest challenges has been making sure his shop is dried out enough to prevent mold build-up in the future.  He has also called in professional help to treat the building.

"Make it so it's good for people," said Candy.  "We can't have mold and people."

Down the street, downtown restoration efforts have finally started up again after rain and floodwaters shut down construction.  And with word that Hurricane Matthew may pose no threat this weekend, there is optimism that the worst may be over.

"Things have finally subsided and it looks like we're not going to get the rain this weekend and I think we'll be alright," said Andrew Richards of Snow Hill.

By Wednesday, downtown was dry and many businesses were open.  However, with Route 12 still being repaired between Snow Hill and Salisbury, the highway department says it could be three more weeks before traffic is flowing normally again into Snow Hill.
