Just heard on our local news that Dundalk is flooded. Anyone has more info?
Lots of smarts come to the East Coast via Dundalk...

Looks like all those above ground pools sprang a leak at once

The picture above is from a neighborhood that's just across 695 from "our" parking lot.
My car stayed there for about 4-5 days for the usual custom procedure (stickers, connect battery, etc...) just before delivery 16 months ago! I post in Delivery only because some new arrivals may be affected.

As an ex-professsional mariner I am very familiar with Dundalk Marine Terminal and the Broening Highway that separates it from the Dundalk neighborhoods. I shouldn't worry about the smarts.

Good news, 'Old smart', I would not have liked anyone's car washed that much before delivery...

Though I feel sorry for those who did get their property flooded!

DUNDALK, Md. -- A break in a 6-foot-wide water main flooded a large section of this Baltimore suburb Friday, washing away part of a road, flooding cars and trapping some residents in their homes.

Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith said the water at the height of flooding was knee- to chest-deep in some places and damaged homes and cars. No injuries or medical emergencies were reported, although crews did rescue several people.
