ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Annapolis emergency officials say floodwaters are receding, but still causing minor detours around the City Dock area.

Emergency management Director Kevin Simmons says public works crews are removing sand trailers and cleaning up debris around the waterline Sunday. He says water levels peaked at 4.6 feet above normal about an hour before high tide at 4:30 a.m., but later in the morning water levels were around 2.6 feet above normal.

The city was operating on a Level 2 for emergency operations on Saturday, with all crews focused on the flooding, but the city has returned to Level 1, which is normal.
