Del. Gov. Lifts State of Emergency in 2 Counties


DOVER, Del. (AP) - Gov. Jack Markell has lifted the state of emergency in New Castle and Kent counties, but has kept the order in place for Sussex County because some areas remain flooded from superstorm Sandy.

Markell lifted the orders at 5 p.m. Tuesday and also removed the Level 1 driving warnings across the state. He warned the public to remain cautious because of closed and flooded roads in some parts of the state.

Under the continued Sussex state of emergency and evacuation order, State Police, local police and National Guard personnel will continue to restrict access to areas deemed unsafe.
