Storm-surge map expands flood zones in Baldwin county

Emergency management officials say an updated storm surge map for Mobile and Baldwin counties reinforces the idea that only low-lying areas near waterways are likely to flood during hurricanes.

For the Eastern Shore, the main change is an expansion of areas that could be affected by storms of all sizes, from Category 1 on up, particularly areas south of Point Clear and around Weeks Bay.
