Flooding forces closure of two Frederick roads

By Washington Post editors

Frederick County officials say small stream flooding has forced the closure of two county roads near Thurmont and Emmitsburg.

Emergency managers across the state prepared Friday for more problems from storms that were expected to produce heavy rain Friday night and Saturday.

The National Weather Service has issued flood watches for much of Maryland because of two storm systems that are expected to affect opposite ends of the state.

In Western Maryland, the danger is that melting snow in the mountains combined with heavy rainfall will push streams and rivers over their banks.

On the Delmarva Peninsula, a second low pressure system moving up the coast is expected to bring more heavy rain and strong winds on Saturday.

Do you think it would be useful to some of the reading public to know WHICH roads are closed?!!!???

I'm sure there are some roads closed elsewhere in the country too.
