Originally posted by Ken King Just heard on the radio that Calvert County has issued mandatory evacuation for several areas and voluntary evacuation for a few more. Turn on the radio and find out if you are impacted.
Looks like the surge is due between 8-10 pm tonight...same time as our high tide.
3-6 foot surge with 4-7 foot waves.
Too bad we are not allowed on the roads to see it! (I might be adventurous enough to walk to St Leonard's creek)
Hang ten brethren.
Lusby 4 pm 1 inch of rain, gust to mid 30's...no power outages yet, and the basement is dry.
I went down to a couple water sites yesterday morning at High Tide.
The folks at St Leonard shores may have had some erosion and dock/boat damage but I'd say the two worst arreas I saw were...
Broome's Island.....dozens of homes got swamped, road closed off, many trees over. I think they will need some serious help with recovery.
Western Shores....Lots of those huge poplars came down...several homes got crunched, over a dozen cars...telephone poles snapped and the front row of homes totally swamped. They may not have power for days. Frustration is running high.
I just got power back this morning...32 hours-Seems like the freezers were saved.
