Nor'Easter barely grazes Sussex County

Mar 14, 2017

Nearly all of the damaging effects of this Nor’Easter seemed to stay north of the C&D canal, with no major flooding reported in the southern part of the state.

 

 

Joe Thomas, Sussex County’s emergency management director, says they’ve seen high winds and “significant wave action” since the storm rolled in Monday night.

 

But he says the worst of it passed without incident, calling it "pretty much a nonevent."

 

“We may still see some lingering effects – maybe some rain or even some snow flurries – but for the most part, it looks like the bulk of the storm is moving to the north of us so we should be in pretty good shape from this point forward,” Thomas said.

 

Heavy snow mostly stuck to New Castle County with Pike Creek recording the most at 4.4 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

 

Milford recorded more than three inches of rain, while a couple inches fell at the beaches.

 

State officials will take a look at any beach erosion that may have taken place in the coming days.
