Post-Hurricane Update

October 30th, 2012 · No Comments

According to the Sussex County government website, travel is difficult and treacherous throughout the area, as roads are flooded and covered in debris. The travel ban has been reduced to a Level I warning which means that travel is permitted but strongly discouraged. Travel into evacuation zones is still prohibited. Survey teams are out and about canvassing the area to determine the extent of the damage done. There are three shelters in place for anyone who has been displaced. They are Cape Henlopen High School (1250 Kinds Highway in Lewes) and Milford High School (612 Lakeview Ave in Milford) which are both accepting pets, and Indian River High School (29772 Armory Road in Dagsboro) which cannot accept pets. All County government offices and schools are closed, but businesses may reopen without limitations at their own discretion. Whatever you do today, just stay safe!
