Pickering Beach, Bowers Beach, Port Mahon, and some other small fishing communities along the Bay. We had a Nor'easter last night, with rain, wind and flooding. Inland, limbs/trees are down in some areas.

Last night? There is some pretty severe tidal flooding going on right now. We are still not at high tide, so we're waiting to see how high it gets. Winds have been averaging just over 50MPH according to the sensor in Dewey Beach.

Rossc.....you are right down in it, aren't you? Things are pretty calm here in Kent County. In fact, the sun is trying to shine through, although it's a little breezy with a tad of rain. Take care, down there!

We have 6" of water in the yard. I'm up high enough that the house won't flood. We're about 1.5 hours from high tide, which should be the worse of it. The roof blew off a house about 5 houses down from us. Not just shingles, the entire roof blew off and flew across the canal into another house.

I took the ferry from Cape May last night. The closer we got to DE the rougher it got. I was supposed to return today. Good thing we checked the forecast and changed our plans.

Hi Delly,

Be careful out there especially at high tide. Lots of roads closed and debris everywhere. Some trees down too. Should be cleaned up by tomorrow.

Our boat is riding up on the pilings but is doing OK. The jet ski floated off it's cradle on the dock. Luckily I went out this morning and tied it off. We're here for the duration at this point. Long neck road is flooded. Amazingly we still have power, satellite TV and of course, internet access.
