Ocean City, Inundated With Flooding, Awaits Storm's Worst

Peak storm conditions, sea levels to come around 8 p.m. high tide
Ocean City passed its first test of Hurricane Sandy – perhaps barely – Monday morning as the morning high tide and a 7-foot storm surge covered downtown areas and the bayside shoreline with up to 4 feet of water.
But the worst is yet to come, with the heart of the storm still on its way and another high tide expected about 8 p.m. The storm surge is already the worst the town has seen since Hurricane Gloria in 1985.
So far, no injuries, deaths or close-call rescues have been reported, town officials said. But conditions are increasingly treacherous, with police halting traffic south of the Route 90 bridge. In a 10 a.m. press conference, Mayor Rick Meehan urged residents to stay indoors to ride out the storm.
