Winds & Rains Pummel Ocean City; Downtown Pier Damaged

Hurricane Sandy has done significant damage to the downtown pier in Ocean City. Officials are particularly worried about high water and the storm surge in Ocean City. Areas in the south of Ocean City have been evacuated. Authorities expect downtown Ocean City to be under water on Monday as Hurricane Sandy heads for the Delmarva Peninsula.

While there could be some breaks in the clouds early, there should be some fog developing once again late Thursday night. The ideas are still intact that high pressure Friday and on Saturday should bring no less than partial sunshine and unseasonably warm afternoons.
