OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - Ocean City’s mayor says pounding surf has damaged a fishing pier in the city.

Mayor Richard Meehan said Saturday evening that the pier’s easternmost section, which forms a T at the end of the pier, is gone. Meehan says that section has been damaged several times in the last five years and rebuilt each time.

Meehan says “The ocean is pretty angry out there, I can tell you.”

The city is experiencing flooding in low lying areas and there is wind damage as well. One thing the city didn’t have: snow.

Meehan says the city got some snow Friday but it was gone Saturday and the city was mostly experiencing wind, rain and storm surge. He says snow is expected to pick up later Saturday.
