Aerial Images of Ocean City After Storm Floods Streets
The Coast Guard releases three images taken during a training flight on Thursday.
U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Evan Lyon was part of a training flight aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Atlantic City when he captured these images of Ocean City on Thursday morning as a coastal storm moved away and a high tide receded.
The images illustrate a common pattern of flooding in Ocean City — with bay-side streets at a lower elevation than ocean-side streets and with Haven and Simpson avenues sitting in a trough between West and Bay avenues.
