More Than 2 Inches Of Rain Recorded In Western Md.

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Authorities say more than 2 inches of rain in parts of western Maryland are pushing streams over their banks and prompting road closures.

The National Weather Service says 2.1 inches of rain were reported near Frostburg in the 24 hours ending at 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Allegany County Emergency Services Director Dick DeVore says there have been few problems aside from flooded basements but he’s concerned about forecasts for up to 2 more inches by Friday morning.

The weather service reports minor flooding along the Conococheague Creek at Fairview, with moderate flooding expected early Friday.

At least 13 roads are closed in northern Frederick County after more than 1.5 inches of rain near Thurmont.
