DELAWARE - Now a warning from DelDOT for residents living in or near Prime Hook Road, and areas prone to flooding.
High tide hit the area at around 4:30 p.m., and emergency officials say they expect significant coastal flooding. They also say that even alternate routes from North Bay Shore Drive and Broadkill Beach could be completely closed off. DelDOT suggests residents should not risk leaving at this time.
"If they are there right now, they should remain in place because the roads are not passable right now. Stay with us until we get another road open for you," said Jim Westoff, PIO for DelDOT.
If you're driving and come across a traffic light, which appears to be temporarily out of service, new laws require that you treat it as a four-way stop. Drivers caught breaking this rule could face a fine of $90 and two points. If the violation contributes to a crash, the fine is $130 and three points.
