OCEAN CITY, Md. - Ocean City Emergency Management officials are continuing to monitor the projected path of Hurricane Florence.  

The Town of Ocean City preparedness efforts have begun in advance of the storm, with staff completing pre-storm action items. These items include removing the walkways and trash cans from the beach, as well as closing the sea wall gates. 

Neighbors are taking action as well.

"We took all the furniture from the outside inside already to make sure it doesn't blow away," said Brenda Lyle-Murphy.

Residents and property owners should also prepare now by making an emergency preparedness kit and having a family communications plan. Preparedness efforts also include tying up water vessels, removing outdoor furniture and securing objects susceptible to wind and flooding.

"It's continuous monitoring. 24 hours a day. Every forecast that the National Hurricane we look closely," said Joseph Theobald, Director of Emergency Services.

"A storm like this could have an impact hundreds of miles away from the actual center of the storm so we'll feel some effects from it," said Lt. Ward Kovacs of the Ocean City Beach Patrol.
