Anyone in touch with folks on the Eastern Shore of Maryland? The latest sounds pretty scary:
wondering about folks along the Chester River...O’Malley warned Marylanders to stay off the roads and hunker down at home. He said the state will soon be dealing with multiple emergencies statewide: flooding and hurricane force winds on the coast, tidal flooding throughout the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, high winds in the Baltimore-Washington corridor, and blizzard-like conditions in Western Maryland.
“Your job over the next 24 to 36 hours is to stay off the roads, keep your spouse off the roads … stay home and hunker down in place.”
O’Malley said the weather forecast has turned for the worse because winds will now be coming at an angle that will push water back up into the Chesapeake Bay and into streams and tributaries feeding the bay.
