WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - High winds overnight knocked down power lines in northern Delaware, causing outages, and heavy rains brought road closures and stranded motorists.
Friday afternoon, Delmarva Power said about 655 of its customers statewide were still without power. More than 500 were in New Castle County.
Winds gusted up to 60 miles per hour.
There's also been flooding along the coast from the heavy rain, including in Wilmington and New Castle. Several cars have gotten stuck in high water and firefighters were called to rescue stranded motorists. The Woodland Ferry is closed because of abnormal high tides.
Delaware State Police say there have been several minor accidents on interstates 95 and 495, but none with serious injuries.
