Delaware Prepares for arrival of late Winter Storm
Officials at Delaware Emergency Management Agency along with officials in all three counties say a pending winter storm that is expected to arrive this evening and impact the state as late as Thursday, bringing heavy precipitation and flooding. No evacuations have been ordered, however residents in areas of Kent and Sussex Counties that experience flooding during coastal storms should consider moving to higher ground prior to the arrival of possible snowfall, heavy rains, and extremely high winds. Those areas are almost certain to experience flooding during the storm, and conditions during the height of the storm could make the process of leaving flooded areas dangerous or impossible.
High Wind, Coastal Flood, and Winter Storm Watches are in effect,with heavy precipitation in the form of rain, snow, or a combination of both, and winds 25 MPH to 35 MPH, with gusts up to 55 MPH.
