Fire Crews Monitoring Millers Island Flooding
Fire officials are reporting as much as six inches of water across some roadways in the peninsula community.
Baltimore County Fire Department units are monitoring the coastal flooding situation in Millers Island, according to department spokeswoman Elise Armacost.
Crews are reporting as much as six inches of water on some roadways, which is affecting access to about six houses, Armacost said in a statement.
The next high tide is scheduled to occur around 10 p.m. and the flooding could worsen as tonight's high tide approaches.
A coastal flood warning is in effect from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Millers Island resident Georgia Melvin-Poling, who lived in a FEMA trailer for a year after Tropical Storm Isabel hit the area in 2003, wrote on Dundalk Patch's Facebook page that this morning's high tide "never went back out due to southerly winds."
Noting that conditions will probably worsen as the day goes on, she wrote, "Nothing we are not used to down here."
