PARK CLOSURE: Effective Immediately, Friday, Nov. 13, the George B Cecil Park has closed prematurely for the winter season due to road erosion.


St. Mary’s County Department of Public Safety would like residents to Be Aware and Be Prepared for flooding.

A Coastal Flood Warning has been extended by the National Weather Service for St. Mary’s County until Saturday at 5 p.m.  Northerly winds have begun to diminish and coastal areas around the Chesapeake Bay area will begin to see a tidal departure which could create an increase of 2.5 to 3 foot above astronomical high tide Friday night for the Patuxent River and Potomac River Corridors.  There are no wind advisories and new rainfall amounts between a tenth and a quarter of an inch are possible tonight.

Rt. 243 at the intersection of Route 5 and Leonardtown Center is now opened.
Rt. 249 on to St. George Island is now opened.

There are still areas with water covering roadways and Coastal Flooding may be an issue in some communities during tonight’s high tide.

HHS cheerleaders are collecting coats at Saturday's playoff game for the annual coat drive. Those attending the game are asked to consider donating some unwanted coats to help those less fortunate.

 


Broomes Island Road (Route 264)  in Calvert County has now been reopened.  


Due to inclement weather and field saturation all athletic fields, both game and practice, have been cancelled for today - Friday, Nov. 13 and tomorrow, Saturday, Nov. 14 in St. Mary's County.

The Coastal Flood Warning has been extended by the National Weather Service for St. Mary’s County until Saturday at 5 p.m. Expect an increase of 2.5 to 3 foot above astronomical high tide Friday morning for the Patuxent River and Potomac River Corridors. Approximately 1/2 inch of rain can be expected through Friday. The wind advisory has been canceled but winds are expected to continue with gusts between 30 to 40 mph. Even though the rains and winds are decreasing, there is still a focus on the Coastal Flooding, due to the wind continuing to push the water up into the Chesapeake Bay.

We will see similar coastal flooding issues as we did yesterday morning. High tide begins at Point Lookout at 10:29 a.m. this morning.
 

There are still many areas with water covering roadways and Coastal Flooding may be an issue in some communities during this morning’s high tide.
