High Winds From Storm Knock Down Del. Power Lines


WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- High winds overnight knocked down power lines in northern Delaware, causing outages, and heavy rains brought road closures and stranded motorists.

By midmorning Friday, Delmarva Power was making progress in restoring electricity, although several hundred of its customers statewide were still without power, most in New Castle County. 

Winds gusted up to 60 miles per hour.

There was also flooding along the coast from the heavy rain, including in Wilmington and New Castle. Several cars have gotten stuck in high water. There are reports of wind and water damage in the Battery Park area of New Castle.

Delaware State Police say there have been several minor accidents on interstates 95 and 495, but none with serious injuries.
