HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The National Weather Service says flooding continues along some western Maryland waterways.

The Conococheague Creek at Fairview was cresting at about 13 feet at 10:15 a.m. Friday. That’s about 5 feet above flood stage and reflects moderate flooding.

The weather service reports minor flooding along the Monocacy River near Frederick. At 10:15 a.m., it was at 16.6 feet and rising toward an expected crest of 17.3 feet.

Minor flooding is forecast along the Potomac River at Point of Rocks Friday evening through early Sunday morning.

The state of Maryland advises boaters to avoid the upper Potomac through Monday.

All city of Frederick athletic fields are closed through Sunday.
