Irene passed by Ocean City without the winds that were originally predicted. While driving around this morning, I saw some flooding and trees down. Assateague is still closed but will be opening soon. Here is the information from the Town of Ocean City regarding re-entry to the island. I’ve also included some pictures of the area. When I can get onto the island, I will update the site with more pictures. Check out Facebook.com/OCfun.
Now that Hurricane Irene has passed Ocean City, Emergency Management officials announce the re-entry plan. Re-entry for citizens will be conducted in two phases as follows:
First phase: Property owners, tenants, business owners and their employees may re-enter with proper identification such as driver’s license showing local address beginning at 9 a.m.
Second phase: Ocean City will be reopened to the general public at noon today.
The beach will be opened, but access to the surf will be restricted today.
Updated information will be posted on the Town’s website, www.oceancitymd.gov, the Emergency Services recorded information line at 410-723-6666, facebook.com/oceancity and on Twitter @ townofoceancity.
