From Harford County Councilman “Capt’n” Jim McMahan:
FLASH FLOOD WATCH FOR HARFORD COUNTY UNTIL THURSDAY. STAY TUNED TO RADIO AND TV
SMALL STREAMS AND DRAINAGE AREAS AT GREATEST RISK
Spring fire season is in full swing in Harford County. Dry conditions between our Spring rains give way to quick spreading brush and woods fires. Maryland residents are prohibited from burning garbage and yard waste. Doing so may result in being ticketed. Residents can still have small recreational fires and barbecues on their property but not on balconies in apartment complexes. Rich Gardiner, spokesperson for Harford County Fire and EMS said common sense should always prevail when having an open flame outdoors. All recreational fires should be checked thoroughly and doused with water before leaving them unattended.
