that includes a list of roads prone to inland flooding that has been compiled by Anne Arundel County. Short periods of intense rainfall, or moderate rainfall over an extended period of time, leads to rising levels in area creeks, streams and rivers.

Permanent road signs are also posted along recognized flood areas.
