PHOTOS: How Broadneck Fared Sandy
Sandy left Broadneck with some downed power lines, trees and flooded roadways, but didn't put much of a dent in Broadneck's spirit.
The aftermath of Hurricane Sandy left Broadneck with some downed power lines, trees and flooded roadways, but didn't put much of a dent in Broadneck's spirit.
I imagine the first thing everyone did this morning was check their power. Nope, still out. Thousands of Broadneck residents went overnight without power. In terms of outages, the area was hit among the hardest in BGE's coverage areas.
When my wife and I woke up, our house's temperature was down to about 45 degrees, but that was the extent of the damage to us.
High winds brought down power lines along Ritchie Highway and the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail, and a traffic light across from Safeway in Arnold, but there have been no reports thus far of trees on homes.
The water level along the Magothy River nearly overtook the docks at Ferry Point Marina, but the newly opened restaurant The Point, which was built along the docks, survived the storm without any flooding.
How did you survive the storm?
