OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - The Route 90 bridge into Ocean City has reopened after being closed to all but emergency traffic as high winds and heavy rain intensify during the arrival of Hurricane Sandy.
The bridge closed at 5 p.m. Monday and reopened at 10 p.m.
Approximately 10 inches of rain is expected. That will result in severe flooding in low-lying areas, when combined with the storm and tidal surges.
For those residents and visitors who haven't evacuated, the town's emergency services officials are now advising them to shelter in place for the rest of the storm.
