“This is neat we don’t see it like this,” said Joseph Theobald, Director of Ocean City Emergency Services “I can’t say enough about how everybody worked together, so we’re in good shape.”
Theobald said the town was well prepared ahead of its blizzard warning and state of emergency for much of Saturday, noting public works and state highway crews have been working around the clock clearing the roads.READ MORE: ‘It’s Not Working,’ Council Member Frustrated At Relentless Violence In Baltimore As Police Defend Crime Plan

“All in all, our call volume was down and there was nothing serious that took place in the town of Ocean City itself.”

“By tonight at dark, I would expect Coastal Highway will have all lanes completely open and a whole lot of black pavement, so the warming of the weather today and the next few days are going to help,” Theobald said.
