Port Deposit Residents Asked To Wait To Return

PORT DEPOSIT, Md. (AP) — Port Deposit residents who fled rising flood waters can’t go home just yet.

Town Administrator Rod Heinze says people in the least seriously affected areas of the Maryland town may be able to return Sunday evening.

Heinze says residents, especially those in the northern part of town, should call town hall and give their names and numbers. When officials are ready to inspect their property and clear it for residents, they will call. Returning residents will have to check in at town hall.

Officials are still working to restore water, sewer and electrical services in Port Deposit. The town was flooded after gates on the Conowingo Dam were opened to deal with rising waters from the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee.
