SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - Heavy rainfall has caused streets to flood in low-lying parts of Ocean City and downtown Salisbury.

Meanwhile, in Salisbury, Fitzwater Street near the Wicomico River is impassable due to flooding. Areas of Route 13 and side streets are also experiencing flooding. Motorists are advised use caution in those areas.
