The winter storm is now but a memory – but has left its mark in Sussex County with high winds that have continued through the night. In Kent and New Castle County – it was snow – and plenty of it! According to the Delaware Emergency Management Agency, accumulations reached 8 to 10 inches in New Castle County, 3 to 6 inches in Kent County, and less than 2 inches in northern Sussex County. The highest snowfall amount 10.9 inches was recorded in Greenville.
The Governor lifted all driving restrictions yesterday evening, however parts of the state did receive more snow overnight – so if you are out driving – watch for slick or icy conditions. In Sussex County there was a dusting of snow in some areas – and you will find patchy ice. It’s also still very windy and there is still some flooding – in Oak Orchard – River Road between Chief and Oak Orchard Roads has high water – use caution traveling through that area.
