List of Caroline road closures

From Sheriff Tony Lippa, as of 3:01 p.m. today

Water collects on Sparta road after receding a bit during the day near the volunteer fire department. Many roads in Caroline county were either closed due to high water or washed away on Friday, September 9, 201, following rains from the previous days' storms. The town of Sparta was hit the hardest where nearly three and a half feet of water flooded the fire house. (Photo by Reza A. Marvashti/ The Free Lance-Star)
