Governor Jack Markell has issued a limited state of emergency and Level 1 driving warning for Kent and New Castle Counties this morning, effective immediately.

According to state law, a “Level 1 Driving Warning” means that any person operating a motor vehicle when a Level 1 Driving Warning has been activated shall exercise extra caution in the operation of their motor vehicle. Non-essential employees, regardless of whether employed by a public or private entity, are encouraged not to operate a motor vehicle on the State's roadways when a Level 1 Driving Warning has been activated, unless there is a significant safety, health or business reason to do so.

Gov. Markell says he strongly encourages drivers who do NOT need to travel to delay or refrain from being out on the road.
