  2. There were fish markets and boardwalk where the inlet is now. I am given to understand that the foundations of those buildings are still there under water. When the outlet was formed, city officials soon realized what a gift that was to the town. The inlet opened up the bayside of the barrier island to the Ocean, and given that benefit, the resort boomed. Those that owned flooded lost businesses, lost them. I think Ocean City had the army core of engineers fortify the breach to keep it open. They did have it fortified. One might think that the breach happened when the Atlantic overwashed the barrier island, but it was the other way around. The bayside flooded and the water rushed from bayside to the Atlantic. I’ve seen pictures of the water breaching from west to east...

  5. Should be ok here in Ocean City. Watch for signs that say “Flood zones,” or similar, and don’t park there. The sewers in the streets empty directly into the bayside, and when the water rises, either salt water floods the streets, or storm rainwater has no where to go because the sewers are blocked by water.
  6. I play violin on the OC boardwalk, and rent a room in Somerset plaza (by Ripley’s). I’ll be watching whatever happens in OC right from the beach.
