Nor’easter Causes Local Flooding

Staff Report

Although Hurricane Joaquin did not hit Delaware directly, many areas in Milford saw major flooding and some areas saw damages from high winds. On Saturday evening, city crews blocked off Front Street in downtown Milford as streets and parking lots flooded in front of Abbott’s Girll. Most notable was the area on the northern bank of the Mispillion River, behind Park Place Restaurant & Longue, Arena’s Deli & Bar and and Fur-Baby Boutique, Daycare, Spa & Hotel. The parking lot at the end of Park Ave was three quarters of the way full with up to two foot of water in some spots. Behind the building of that parking lot, water rose within feet of the back door of Arena’s as the banks of the River could not be recognized. Businesses owners reporter no damage to their building and stayed open as customers still made the trek despite the flooded area. Although several trees were uprooted due to high winds, a very large tree at the corner of Kings Hwy and Lakeview Ave, city officials state that their were no electric outages reported due to the storm.
