ANNAPOLIS (WJZ) — Tropical Storm Isaias moved through Anne Arundel County Tuesday, quickly leaving a path of damage in its wake.
“It’s kinda bad. A lot of rain and a lot of trees coming down, so it’s not too good,” a resident told WJZ.
In Crownsville, high winds and soaking rain toppled a tree, damaging the roof of a home.
“Just heard a loud crash, and a boom, and came outside and saw the tree fell,” a neighbor said.
In Annapolis, the City Dock, an area prone to flooding, managed to dodge high water.
“I was surprised, it’s not really as flooded as bad as it’s been,” Sage Dompineo, of Annapolis, said.
The city did see high winds blow a recently painted George Floyd mural off it’s base and into the harbor. The Annapolis harbormaster pulled it from the water. The artist said he’s hopeful it can be repaired.
“We’re just going to dry it out, let it do it’s thing. I think it’s pretty durable,” Jeff Hunington, the artist of the mural, said.
As storm clouds gave way to blue skies, those who live in the area said it could’ve been worse.
“I have giant oak trees all around my house, but everything held strong, so I’m really happy,” Joan Coker, of Annapolis, said.
