CRISFIELD, Md.- Due to expected heavy street flooding in Crisfield during the next high tide, which will occur at approximately 4:30 p.m., city residents are advised to move their vehicles to high ground and to avoid driving through flooded streets. 

For people needing to relocate their vehicles, the city is making the parking lot at the former Carvel Hall plant available for temporary parking as long as the need exists. 

The gate to Carvel Hall will stay open until the last vehicle is removed. Drivers are asked to park only in the paved parking lot and not on the grass. Vehicles found parked on the grass may be subject to towing. 

Officials said if driving on flooded streets is necessary, drive slowly to avoid creating a wake, which cause damaged to homes and property.
