Several parts of Delmarva took damage today as a result of Isaias. In Wicomico and Worcester Counties, crews spent most of the day cleaning up. “We went from worst to best all within a 12 hour period,” said Ocean City Fire Department Chief Richard Bowers. Tuesday afternoon skies were clear. But that wasn’t the case as Isaias ripped through Delmarva in the morning hours. In Ocean City no injuries were reported. But the physical damage to property was clear as crews spent the day clearing debris. Chief Bowers tells 47ABC that one major concern was making sure people avoided any downed power lines. “Any downed wire was a life safety hazard. We wanted to make sure that no one touched it or walked on it. Thankfully we did not have any injuries,” said Chief Bowers. Chief Bowers says he feels the people of Ocean City were well prepared for the storms effects. He says that’s probably why there weren’t any serious injuries or worse – death.
