Ocean City Prepared As Storms With Heavy Wind Sweep Through Atlantic


BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The effects of a storm in the Atlantic are being felt along parts of the east coast, including Ocean City.

Kimberly Eiten has more on preparations being made it just in case. Emergency managers say this is nothing that Ocean City has not dealt with before, but they are still they bracing for a lot of water.

An empty boardwalk, toppled lifeguard stands and raging waters are some minor warnings, as a normally busy summer destination braces for a storm.
Vacationers and locals alike are deserting the beach as Ocean City waits for what is to come.

It can get scary out here, with the shorelines being pushed in for the beach replenishments we have, there aren’t sandbars to protect you,” says one beachgoer.

Theobald wouldn't know a storm if it slapped the side of his head. He spends the bulk of his time in New Jersey anyway.

Need a sandbar; Need a sandbar; Need a sandbar so the waves don't continue to break right at the shoreline. Year in, year out the response to the sandbar question is - we don't need it, no one is getting hurt...blah blah blah. Come on, I'm sure AGH has stats showing injuries from folks in the ocean. Its IMPOSSIBLE to say no one is getting hurt from May-Sept on a mostly packed 10 miles beach.

The huge cuts after every storm along the beach speaks volumes. Need a sandbar to break the waves. Yes, that may make surfers unhappy, but your majority "base" is vacationers!!!

~sigh~

That's why he's called "Jersey Joe". What a joke.

8:54 actually it is the sandbars that force waves to break much further from shore and provide surfers with longer waves to ride. Now the waves break too close to the shore.

The emergency Management director actually isn't much worse than the government leaches hired during Dares tenure. Fortunate for the taxpayers, most are gone with their 6 figure pensions. When the silly Council put the beach patrol under Joe, I gave up
