A MESSAGE FROM WICOMICO COUNTY EXECUTIVE BOB CULVER

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – SEPTEMBER 30, 2016


A MESSAGE FROM WICOMICO COUNTY EXECUTIVE BOB CULVER

Salisbury, MD … Wicomico County residents are encouraged to use caution and avoid driving through water running across roadways. In many cases, water flowing over roads actually causes sections of the road to erode and that damage isn't visible to the driver. Drivers can also flood out their engines, cause brake failure and hydroplaning.

We've had reports of widespread flooding and stranded vehicles. Flooding is still a major concern in many areas. The next high tide is around 4 PM. If you see standing water, please do not drive through it.

All available County road crews have been out responding to calls and fixing roads as they go. If anyone knows of a road that has water flowing over it, please call the County Roads Department at (410) 548-4872.

Over the past 24 hours the County has opened all the gates at County-owned dams. Coulbourn Mill and Morris Mill dams are being closely monitored because of their proximity to residential concentrations.

I just want all County residents to be safe and to be cautious. We've just experienced a major storm and threats to safety still continue.

I talked to my County Council rep and he said that Turd Burglar Culver didn't send the County Council that same Press Release. I watch them on PAC 14 all the time and when Turd Burglar is there all he wants to do is argue with the members and they are sick of him.
