The cold snap has left many on the islands that dot the Chesapeake Bay a bit stranded.
Tangier Island has been iced in with the low temperatures.
And, the Accomack County Board of Supervisors has sent a letter to the Maryland Department of Natural Resources complaining that the agency did not send an ice-breaking ship to the island.
Supervisor Wanda Thornton called this an emergency situation.
A spokesman for the state agency told the Salisbury Daily Times that DNR was ready to send supplies by boat if it is needed.
