Winter Storm Update

March 13, 2017, the National Weather Service is calling for a wintry mix of freezing rain, snow, and wind gusts of up to 50 mph beginning tonight for the Lower Eastern Shore.

The heaviest periods of rain and possible snow accumulations are expected to take place tonight through Tuesday afternoon, with winds beginning tonight and lasting through Wednesday. Power outages due to downed trees are possible with this storm.

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and Worcester County Emergency Services (WCES) urge residents to secure all loose outdoor objects around their homes and businesses. Those who must venture out onto area roadways should exercise extreme caution, as slick conditions, periods of low visibility, and possible downed power lines and trees will make driving hazardous. 

The Town of Ocean City’s Emergency Services Department is continue to monitor the storm and will continue to update residents and visitors as services change. Residents should program their radios to 99.5 and follow @townofoceancity on twitter or visit https://www.facebook.com/TownOfOceanCity for updates.
