Citizens cautioned to be aware of Hazardous Tidal Currents

Following the recent, tragic drownings in the Chesapeake Bay off of Cove Point, citizens are urged to be aware of hazardous conditions caused by tidal currents reacting to certain geological formations.

"We are deeply saddened by recent drownings off of Cove Point," said Steve Weems, president of the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners. "Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families who have lost loved ones."

In an effort to educate swimmers, signs are being posted at Cove Point Beach alerting swimmers to potential dangers of swimming in open water. Everyone is encouraged to take all necessary precautions to avoid injury. For more information about water safety, please visit and select "Services" then "Public Safety."
