BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Don’t walk through the grass.

It may not be a common phrase around a sandy beach, but Ocean City officials are giving the warning after a large amount of phragmite washes ashore. Also known as “Sea Grass” beach officials say mounds has washed up from 94th Street north to the Delaware State Line.

They ask that the public not walk through the grass due to debris and other sea life that could be hidden underneath.
