REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Rehoboth Beach fared rather well during Hurricane Sandy, city officials said. On Tuesday morning, all restrictions had been lifted in the city.

Trash will be collected in the commercial areas of the city on Wednesday, Oct. 31.  Pick-up in the residential areas will resume the normal schedule with pick-up on the south side of the City on Thursday, Nov. 1, and on the north side on Friday, Nov. 2.

Officials said the dunes east of the boardwalk were eroded with some sea water rolling over them, however they functioned as designed, preventing any damage to the boardwalk and adjacent properties.  Several trees were blown down at various locations.  There were a few sporadic power outages but the city never totally lost power. 

According to officials, there was street flooding on Wilmington, Delaware and Brooklyn avenues related to the ongoing storm water outfall issue.
