Snow Hill Expecting More Rain

Posted: Updated:

SNOW HILL, Md. - After heavy rain and massive flooding, Snow Hill is bracing for a wet weekend.


"I am over the rain," said Suzanne Timmons, owner of Sassy Girl Boutique on Green Street. "I am going to be honest with you, I could go without it."

The town is still recovering from last week's flooding, as part of Route 12 is still closed. Pocomoke River water levels are already high, and WBOC's Mike Lichniak says just an inch of rain this weekend could cause it to flood again. 

Rick Smith's wife owns the Corner Shoppe downtown. He says potential flooding is bad for business, and adds insult to injury.

"Hopefully it won't happen on Saturday because Saturday's usually a pretty strong day," he told WBOC. "We already got beat up once and I really would rather not be beat up that way again."

Across the street, Gary Weber owns the Blue Dog Cafe. He says flooding could cause the bridge into town to close again, and  while it's inconvenient, he's grateful the forecast isn't more menacing.

"We're a little nervous about it, watching the forecast and what's happening down south," he said. "But if we have to put up with another bridge closing, it's certainly a heck of a lot easier than what the people in Florida are dealing with."
