    Sandy

    The forecast models from NOAA at 8 AM this morning show Sandy coming ashore right on top of Ocean City. This storm, combined with the Nor'Easter and full moon is sounding nastier as it gets closer to us. Please be careful out there.

    Is that before or after the hurricane party at paul revere's? In all seriousness, as has been said everyone stay safe. I know I'll be watching the webcams this weekend.

    Looks like this could get pretty ugly!

    I hope all of you in town during this time will be able to stay safe.

    Also hope that those of you with property or businesses are able to protect your operations. We're all counting on you to be there for our next OC vacation!

    There's still a few days until she gets close. A lot can happen between now and then, since those bad boys are pretty unpredictable. At least there's not 250,000 tourists here like there would be on a summer weekend.

    BTW pghDave, love your avatar.

    Mandatory Evacuations Declared in Worcester County

    The Worcester County Commissioners have declared a local state of emergency and have ordered waterfront property owners to evacuate due to imminent threats from Hurricane Sandy. This includes all properties in the West Ocean City area, the communities of Cape Isle of Wight, Mystic Harbour, Snug Harbor, The Landings and Assateague Point. Also included in this are South Point, anything east of the parkway in Ocean Pines and all other waterfront properties throughout Worcester County due to anticipated flooding.

    Current forecasts call for 8” to 10” of rain with prolonged, strong winds between 40 to 45 miles per hour (mph) sustained and gusts of 60 mph, increasing the likelihood of structural damages, downed trees and power outages that are anticipated to continue for extended periods of several days or more.

    County shelters will open at 1:00 p.m. today, October 28, 2012. These shelters include Stephen Decatur High School, Snow Hill High School and Pocomoke High School, and the pet friendly shelters Stephen Decatur Middle School, Animal Control in Snow Hill and Pocomoke High School. Pet owners must provide their own carriers and food.

    People with special needs requiring shelter or assistance should contact the Worcester County Health Department at 410-632-1100 and then press 8

    Is this the same as a mandatory evacuation from Ocean City? The wording is interesting in that it orders waterfront owners to evacuate but what about renters? According to the Ocean City news release at 4:50 PM, there is no evacuation above 17th St.
