Ocean City Maryland was hammered by storms creeping up the coast Friday.

Waves between 10 and 15 feet batter the beaches and already flooded roads.

High-speed winds have blown sand from the beach onto the boardwalk.

City officials say they prepared for whatever the weekend brings .

One company is vowing to stick it out through the impending storms.

Harry Gotwalls met his wife in Ocean City many years ago. The couple now lives in Montana and came back to the beach for what will likely be their last time due to Gotwall’s wife’s failing health. Video: 

 

The inlet was closed Thursday evening as conditions are expected to get worse over the weekend.
