Queen Anne County Sheriff’s Office and Queen Anne County Emergency Services Busy During Storm

The Queen Anne County Sheriff’s Office and Queen Anne County Emergency Services were busy Sunday morning and throughout the day due to a weather front that passed thru the area dumping over six inches of rain. Queen Anne’s County Emergency Services responded to five weather related calls involving three water rescues handled by the local Volunteer Fire Depts. No injuries were reported from any of the incidents. The Queen Anne County Sheriff’s Office responded to numerous reports of roads being washed out fully or partially. Currently Pinder Hill Road, north of Church Hill and Spaniard Neck Road @ Wood Lane will be closed an extended period of time due to the roads being completely wash away.

We would like to remind the public they should never move barricades or drive through moving water. Less than a foot of moving water can move most cars and less than two feet can move most SUV’s. Should they experience flooding in their homes, they need to be familiar with where their electric and LP gas shut offs are. For more preparedness information, they can visit www.qacdes.org or contact Emergency Management at 410-758-4500.
