County Estimates $3M to Repair Rainstorm Damage

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Anne Arundel County officials estimate it could cost $3 million to repair the damage from historic rainfalls that deluged the county earlier this week.

The county experienced some of the highest rain totals from a line of storms that ran through the region Tuesday. The community of Green Haven recorded more than 10 inches of rain, and Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, which is located in the county, recorded 6.3 inches, the highest level ever recorded at the airport.

The Capital of Annapolis reports that a preliminary assessment Thursday by county officials found washed-out roads and damaged underground utilities throughout the county.

Some repairs may take weeks.
