9-12-11: After the Flood
Over the weekend, Tropical Storm Lee caused near record flooding in Maryland. In Cecil County, residents of Port Deposit and Havre de Grace are beginning to return to their homes on the banks of the Susquehanna. Both towns were evacuated after the Conowingo Dam opened over 40 flood gates, causing the river to rise. In Howard and Baltimore Counties, there were incidents of flash flooding.
Sheilah speaks about the aftermath of the flooding with Jane Bellmyer, reporter for the Cecil Whig, and Ed McDonough, spokesman for the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, which provides these tips to property owners dealing with water damage.
