More Than 200 Without Power In Ocean City Area; Flood Advisory In Effect

More than 200 people were reportedly without power in the Ocean City area as the region recovered from the nor'easter that hit overnight.

The National Weather Service has issued a "Winter Weather Advisory" and "Coastal Flood Advisory" for through Friday morning. Minor to moderate tidal flooding is expected at the times of high tide during this period, according to city officials. 

High tide will occur at approximately 6:24am and 6:49pm (9th Street Bridge tides) on Thursday.  Coastal flooding may continue at the times of high tide for the next few days.

Residents and visitors in areas of Ocean City that typically experience tidal flooding are advised to move vehicles to higher ground.  Some roadways in low lying areas are likely to experience flooding.  Do not drive on flooded roadways or around barricades, according to city officials.

The Ocean City Police Department would also like to remind the public that parking is prohibited along the designated snow emergency route in Ocean City.  City Ordinance 7-3.9, prohibits vehicles from parking on any portion of the roadway when the road is snow covered.  The designated snow emergency route for Ocean City is the entire length of West Avenue from North Street to 59th Street.  When the road is snow covered all vehicles must be removed for snowplow operations.
