Sen. Hester and Jennifer Solan: Preparing for the Worst

February 22, 2021

The arctic blast in Texas and resulting power grid failures is unfortunately only the most recent of many severe weather events. Across Maryland, a recent NOAA study shows the frequency of flooding is dramatically increasing in vulnerable areas like Cambridge, Tolchester Beach, Baltimore City, Annapolis, and Solomons Island. For example, projections for Baltimore City show 5-9 days of flooding will occur in 2020, 15-25 days in 2030, and 50-155 days in 2050. Flash floods, like those experienced in Ellicott City, result in millions of dollars of damage and lost lives.
