Public Works Begins Recovery Efforts, Flooding Expected to Continue Through Monday

OCEAN CITY, MD – (October 4, 2015):  While reported damage from the storm system was minimal, Ocean City Public Works employees will be working through the next two weeks to restore areas of the city back to normal. Citizens are urged to avoid the boardwalk, beach and Inlet Lot to allow Public Works employees to easily clear those areas. 

Public Works employees will first focus on restoring the Inlet Lot, clearing the boardwalk of significant amounts of sand, ensuring that all roadways are passable and restoring the beach back to its normal state. The Inlet Parking Lot and the beach remain closed to the public until further notice. Road closures due to impassible roadways may continue over the next several days in low-lying areas throughout Ocean City. 

Due to strong rip currents that occur during and after storms, citizens are reminded not to swim in the ocean when conditions improve.
