Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 6:09 AM EDT on October 01, 2016


... A Flood Warning remains in effect until midnight EDT Sunday for
Sussex County...

At 604 am EDT... local law enforcement and river gauges reported
flooding in several locations in Sussex County. Up to 13 inches of
rain fell in some locations since Wednesday. Though there has been
very little in additional rainfall since Friday... it will take time
for flood waters to recede. In addition... there is a chance for rain
today and tonight. With already saturated ground... any additional
rain will quickly become runoff and exacerbate ongoing flooding.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Georgetown... Milford... Seaford... Millsboro... Laurel... Lewes...
Milton... Selbyville... Bridgeville... Delmar... Dagsboro... Millville...
Ellendale... Henlopen Acres... Sycamore... Cape Henlopen State Park...
Gumboro... Long Neck... Ocean View and Blades.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported.
Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected.
However... all interested parties should take necessary precautions
immediately.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.
