Nobody knows for certain what lies near the storm drain at the base of the Admiral Heights Swim Club in Annapolis -- and that uncertainty is holding up a $500,000 drain renovation project intended to prevent runoff and flooding. About half of the funding is from a state grant that expires Jan. 12, and some fear that the city and pool officials will not reach an agreement in time. "I'm in panic mode," said Evan Belaga, president of the nonprofit Weems Creek Conservancy, which worked to secure some of the grants.

Heavy rainfall and severe thunderstorms in the past week have flooded basements, overflowed storm drains and knocked out phone service in parts of the Baltimore region, officials said yesterday. As of yesterday afternoon, the National Weather Service had recorded 3.55 inches of rain in Baltimore this month. Baltimore is 7.28 inches above normal rainfall totals for the year. Fallen tree limbs, lightning strikes and waterlogged cables - along with ordinary problems not related to weather - have led to more than 2,500 reports of telephone service troubles in the area, more than double the usual number of problems, said Verizon spokeswoman Sandra Arnette.

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to declare a Maryland-wide state of emergency and call out the National Guard, leave tired and frustrated travelers with no means of escape other than jam-packed trains,...

Now that the snow has stopped falling, weather forecasters are looking ahead warily at the danger of flooding as temperatures begin to rise and rain approaches later in the week. "Rain is a wonderful melter of snow," said National Weather Service meteorologist Michelle Margraf. "When temperatures start warming up a bit, and rain comes Friday ... we could have some river-type flooding." The forecast called for daily highs in the mid-40s beginning tomorrow, with a chance of rain developing by Thursday night and continuing through Saturday.

Exactly four years ago, Howard County school officials said student enrollments would peak about now, and then would begin dropping off, lessening the need for expensive new schools - but no more. School enrollment guru David C. Drown told the county's Spending Affordability Committee yesterday that slightly slower, but steady enrollment growth is the norm for now, with a possible decline in 2011 - if then. "As you go out [in time], there's less and less comfort on that," Drown said. Listening to Drown, school board member Virginia Charles whispered her take on the current theory.
