Advisory For Recreational Use Of Upper Potomac

Play associated audio

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) The Maryland Department of Natural Resources says recreational uses of the upper Potomac River should be avoided because recent rains have increased river levels.

Natural resources officials say the advisory extends through Monday and includes creeks and streams feeding the upper Potomac.

Frederick County officials, meanwhile, say small stream flooding has forced the closure of two county roads near Thurmont and Emmitsburg, and emergency managers statewide are preparing for more problems from storms that were expected to produce heavy rains Friday night and Saturday.

Melting snow in western Maryland is also expected to add to the flooding potential.
