Delaware Braces For Super Storm - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Delaware Braces For Super Storm

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Utilities and emergency management officials in Delaware are gearing up for a severe storm that could hit the Delmarva peninsula.
    
Hurricane Sandy is churning through the Caribbean and is expected to merge with a winter storm and a blast of Arctic air over the eastern U.S. early next week in what some are calling a "Frankenstorm."
    
Delaware is expected to begin feeling the storm's effect on Sunday.
    
Delmarva Power has activated its emergency teams and is going through checklists to ensure it has sufficient manpower and resources to respond to power outages, including vehicles, cables and poles. The Delaware Electric Cooperative is taking similar steps.
    
Emergency management officials are encouraging residents and visitors to continue monitoring the storm and have supply kits and evacuation plans ready if needed.
