Areal Flood Warning

Statement as of 1:37 PM EDT on October 01, 2016

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

At 132 PM EDT... local law enforcement and river gauges reported
flooding across the warned area. Up to 13 inches of rain fell across
the warned area since Wednesday. Although little additional rain has
fallen since Friday... it will take some time for the flood waters to
recede. There will be some additional rain... mainly along coastal
areas... into this evening. With the ground already saturated... any
additional rain will quickly become runoff and exacerbate the
flooding. Numerous roads are still closed as they are underwater...
and several roads have collapsed and washed out. Do not attempt to
drive through flooded roads and do not attempt to drive around

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

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.
