Hogan rescinds state of emergency in Maryland

Gov. Larry Hogan on Sunday rescinded the state of emergency that was issued in advance of Hurricane Joaquin.

As rain has caused major flooding in South Carolina, parts of the Baltimore region are still watching out for the chance of some coastal flooding overnight.

South Baltimore is under a coastal flood advisory until 4 a.m. as tides are expected to be 1 to 1.5 feet above normal around high tide overnight. Anne Arundel County is under a coastal flood warning until 5 a.m. With tides expected 1.5 to 2.5 feet above normal, moderate flooding will reach the floor of the Maritime Museum in Annapolis and it will begin to cover Bowyer Road at the Naval Academy, the National Weather Service said. In St. Mary's County in Maryland, flooding has reached two feet in some areas, and is expected to continue over the next couple of high tide cycles.

Ocean City, meanwhile, is under both coastal flood and high surf advisories until Monday evening. Surf height is forecast to be 8-11 feet, with dangerous rip currents, the weather service said. Flooding in low-lying areas could lead to road closures and beach erosion.

Waves have reached heights of ten feet due to coastal flooding over the weekend in Ocean City, and officials say public works employees will begin a cleanup effort that will last roughly two weeks. Officials in a statement warned citizens to avoid the boardwalk, the beach and Inlet Lot, which will be closed to the public until further notice.

Partly sunny skies are forecast to return to the Baltimore area Monday with highs in the upper 60s.
