SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. - Emergency officials in Delaware are preparing for the storm, and warning residents about possible coastal flooding.
During October's storm, Sussex County residents in Oak Orchard saw severe flooding in some areas. Officials are now saying flooding with this storm, is expected to be comparable to that of Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Irene.
"What we're asking people, is that they need to be cognoscente of the forecast, and now is the time to get out harms way and move to higher ground," said Joseph Thomas, Director of Sussex County Emergency Operations.
Officials also say residents living in bay communities in Kent county, should also leave those areas, before the rain and high winds make road conditions more difficult.
