Dear Friends,
I'd like to remind you all that Ocean City will be under a Coastal Flood Warning through noon Tuesday. The forecast suggests we could see flooding slightly higher on Tuesday morning than we did on Monday. 
Please remember never to try to drive through flood waters, and to move your cars from areas that experience flooding.
Check for the latest updates on the storm and check our "Frequently Asked Questions" at
Flooding can be expected during high tides at 8:10 p.m. Monday and 8:33 a.m. Tuesday.
With snow also in the forecast, travel conditions may not be great on Tuesday, so try to limit your time on the roads. And remember that all parked cars should be removed from West Avenue, the city’s snow emergency route.
I hope you’ll all check on your neighbors and help secure loose items on their properties, if they’re out of town.
Stay safe,
Jay A. Gillian
