Heavy Rains Making Delaware Roads Treacherous

Screen Shot 2013-07-12 at 3.48.57 PMEffective immediately, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is asking motorists to avoid driving on roads in Kent and Sussex Counties if possible until the rainstorm subsides. Water on many roads is creating potentially hazardous driving conditions. If you must drive, please drive with caution. The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning until 5:15 p.m.

As more than four inches of rain have fallen on portions of Delaware since this morning, many roads are becoming covered in water, and some traffic signals are not working, due to power outages.

When encountering a road that is covered in water, motorists should not drive through the water, because the road might be damaged under the water.

If motorists come upon a traffic signal that is not working, they should come to a complete stop and treat the intersection like a four-way stop.

If you have any questions regarding this press release, please contact Mrs. Sandy Roumillat, Deputy Manager of Public Relations at (302)760-2080.
