December 24, 2009

Public works officials in the region are urging residents to remove snow from flat roofs and make sure storm drains are clear of debris. The warnings were issued in advance of possible heavy rain predicted for later this week. Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold told residents that accumulated snow and heavy rain could cause roofs to collapse. Baltimore Public Works Director David Scott asked residents to clear storm drains in their neighborhoods to prevent flooding in streets and basements.
