CRISFIELD FLOODING BULLETIN
Friday, October 11, 2019 at 3:30 pm
The City of Crisfield has just been notified by the Somerset County Department of Emergency Services that we can expect the flooding that has occurred today to continue overnight with the next high tide, possibly in greater volumes than what we experienced today. Areas that normally experience street flooding during routine storms will see a greater volume of water covering your streets and properties. The flooding is expected to occur during the Friday and Saturday tide cycles. Accordingly, the City of Crisfield has taken the following steps to assist our citizens during the next hours: •The parking lot at Carvel Hall will be available for public parking for those needing to move their personal vehicles to high ground. The gate will be open by 4:00 pm today and will remain open until the last car has been removed. Please park only where indicated, do not block other vehicles and understand that this service is being offered at your own risk. •Sand and sand bags will be made available in limited numbers for the protection of commercial buildings and residential structures. Empty sand bags may be collected at City Hall, 319 West Main Street until 4:00 pm today. After that, you may get them at the headquarters of the Lower Somerset Ambulance Squad. Initially, we will provide up to 5 bags to a location as long as quantities last. If more are needed, we will do our best to accommodate you. •Sand, free to the public, will be available outside Carvel Hall by 4:30pm today, as well. Please take only as much as you need and be considerate of your neighbors. •Streets subject to heavy flooding will be closed to through-traffic upon the judgment of the Crisfield Police Department & Public Works. SPEEDING THROUGH FLOODED STREETS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AS THIS WILL CAUSE DAMAGE TO HOMES AND BUSINESSES ALIKE. THE POLICE HAVE BEEN INSTRUCTED TO ENFORCE THIS DIRECTIVE VIGOROUSLY. Please be careful and respect those around you. •For any emergency needs, please call 9-1-1 and someone will respond.
If you have any questions about this bulletin, please don’t hesitate to call City Hall at 410-968-1333. Thank you and God Bless You.
Rick Pollitt, Crisfield City Manager
