      The Baltimore Sun reports that Ocean City's downtown pier was more or less demolished Sunday night by crashing surf and wind from Hurricane Sandy.{}

      Here are breaking details, as well as the link to the story:

      "Town police spokesman Michael Levy said there is extensive damage to the pier, though webcams show some of the structure still standing. Town officials will provide more details at a 10 a.m. press conference.

      "The pier sits at the southern end of the Boardwalk, in the area south of 17th Street under a mandatory evacuation since Sunday afternoon because of flooding."{}http://bsun.md/TPhvm1
