News to Assist Flood Victims in LMM

Posted: September 21st, 2009 @ 9:39pm

From our neighbors across Cheshire Bridge...
From Jane Rawlings, President Lindridge Martin Manor Neighborhood Association ...

As many of you unfortunately know firsthand, LMM has experienced a major flood event unprecedented since Hurricane Ivan. To those of you I spoke with earlier today I again extend my sympathies. I am racing against the water that is at our back door in an effort to get this out to as many folks as possible. I recognize that many residents are without power and hence unable to read this; so I ask that those of you who are more fortunate share this information with your neighbors to the best of your abilities.

Earlier today I spoke with officials in the Department of Watershed Management and they assured me that there has been no system malfunction. The extensive flooding in our neighborhood has been reported to the proper officials.
