OCEAN CITY, Md. - After Ocean City Beach Patrol made 141 water rescues on Monday, Captain Butch Arbin said conditions were looking better Wednesday morning.

Arbin said beach patrol made about 84 rescues Tuesday during a short period of time, and then it calmed back down in the afternoon.

Wednesday morning, Arbin said he wasn't expecting beach patrol to make as many rescues. However, the captain said the rip current risk still remains at a higher level.

He said it's important people remember how to stay safe if they are caught in a rip current.

"That's why we have the acronym 'R.I.P.' 'R' for 'Just relax.' 'I' [for] 'I need help," and then 'P' -- 'Swim parallel and you'll be out of there very soon," said Captain Arbin.

  • Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
