A second Maryland hearing is still scheduled for Thursday night in Chesapeake Beach, weather permitting.
"Hopefully damage there will be minimal and we can go on as scheduled," said Lynn Fegley, deputy fisheries director for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources and one of the state's representatives on the Atlantic Coast commission. That session is slated for 6 to 9 p.m. at the Northeast Community Center, 4075 Gordon Stinnett Ave.
