Flooding, road closures in Annapolis

Posted at 5:29 PM, Oct 28, 2021

ANNAPOLIS, Md — Parts of Annapolis are experiencing flooding as a storm passes the city.

Yesterday, the city's Office of Emergency Management handed out sandbags on Dock Street to help get people prepared. The city is anticipating continued flooding conditions in low-lying areas.

Businesses and homeowners downtown are loading up front doors and areas where water could seep in. One business manager says this area floods fairly often and they'll prepare the best they can for this latest storm.

"Put sandbags out and hope for the best. Well luckily for us we only have a little bit coming into the actual mall but all the other establishments, the restaurants, tips, armadillos, they've taken some bad hits in there. A lot of water inside."

The city has closed several streets. The city also says five-foot tides are possible. That would be the third-highest tide the city has seen since the 1930's.
