From Harford County government:
A warning for business owners about the record snowfall in Harford County:
As snow begins to melt and pack, Harford County Emergency Services and the Department of Inspections, Licenses & Permits urge area businesses with flat roofs to be wary of snow accumulations and snow drifts on roofs caused by the recent historic blizzard. Snow will become heavier and more dense as it melts, refreezes and melts again.
Business owners should ensure that snow is removed in accordance with FEMA guidelines for working on a roof.
In addition, please check roof drainage systems and make sure they are functional to prevent ponding in case of rain. We recommend that snow removal be performed by a professional.
Contact information for businesses to report damages from the winter storm:
Also, as we transition into recovery we ask that you inform your local emergency management agency with information if you have had any damage to your business as a result of the winter weather.
The contact number for Harford County Emergency Services to report such damage is 410-638-4900. In addition, if you have any questions regarding insurance, you can contact the Maryland Insurance Administration at 800-492-6116 (press 0 for receptionist).
