May 2018 Flooding Event

Heavy rains and flooding caused widespread damage in Frederick County on May 15 and May 16. In response, County Executive Jan Gardner issued a local State of Emergency, which authorized County agencies to activate their emergency plans. The local State of Emergency was lifted on May 23. Issuing a local State of Emergency may allow the County to recover some costs through state and federal programs.
