More news from the Town of Ocean City

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Next High Tide at 12:53 p.m., More Flooding Expected

OCEAN CITY, MD – (October 3, 2015): Ocean City’s downtown area appears to be holding up, despite significant flooding and strong sustained winds. While minimal damage has been reported at this time, high tidal cycles are expected to continue bringing moderate flooding to Ocean City’s low-lying areas.

The weekend forecast includes light rain, heavy surf and minor beach erosion. Sustained winds of approximately 25-35 mph are expected, with gusts up to 45 mph. Winds should subside by Sunday night, however; minor to moderate flooding could last throughout next week. No power outages have been experienced today; however; additional outages are possible during high tide cycles.

The Inlet Parking Lot and the beach remain closed to the public until further notice. In addition, various streets in Ocean City, specifically in the downtown area, may close due to impassible roadways at high tide.

Hurricane Joaquin continues to track east, impacting Ocean City during high tide on Sunday and Monday. Minimal effects from the hurricane are expected for our area.

Before, during and after the storm, the Town of Ocean City will be posting storm related information on various websites, social media outlets and through the Emergency Alert system. The next update is expected to be before 5 p.m. today, Saturday, October 3.
