OCEAN CITY, MD – (October 5, 2015): The Town of Ocean City is continuing clean-up today, as crews work diligently to move sand and restore the beach. Although damage throughout the town is minimal, employees are conducting light debris removal and repairing damage to the fence along the Boardwalk.
The Inlet Parking Lot and beach are reopened at this time, although citizens are asked to avoid areas where Public Works crews are cleaning, for safety and efficiency purposes. Due to strong rip currents that occur during and after storms, citizens are reminded not to swim in the ocean.
The Town of Ocean City would like to thank residents, our local and state partners, businesses and visitors for staying informed and being prepared, before, during and after the storm. Due to the preparedness of the citizens and the hard work of employees and our allied agencies, the Ocean City community experienced zero storm related injuries and minimal city-wide damage.
Thank you for following our City Wide Emergency Alerts. This is the last Emergency Alert and news updated regarding the weekend storm system and Hurricane Joaquin. Additional information regarding cleanup will be posted on social media sites if needed.
