REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP)- National Guard soldiers helped restore order in Delaware, by assisting police with traffic control, evacuations and transportation through high waters during superstorm Sandy.
About 500 Delaware Guardsmen were deployed throughout the state. A military police unit also helped Delaware State Police set up checkpoints.
The work continues Wednesday. Guardsmen from an engineer company will bring five bulldozers and a grader to the Indian River Inlet Bridge to help remove sand and other debris.
The National Guard effort ran into trouble Tuesday when a large truck towing a water trailer lost control and slid down an embankment. It overturned on southbound Delaware Route 1 near Roth Bridge. The two occupants of the truck were treated and released from a hospital.
