Ocean City Council Member Joe Hall II was out walking the boardwalk Tuesday near a fishing pier that was damaged by the storm. He says a piling found its way into his yard with other debris. He found his trashcan four blocks away.

Hall, who has lived in the area since 1970, says the flooding is the worst he’s ever seen.

Brooke McClure of Ocean City was out walking her dog Dixie and taking pictures. The 51-year-old McClure says she has been sharing photos on Facebook because everyone wanted to see them.

Officials had turned off her power protectively, but it was back on by Tuesday morning.
