KITTS HUMMOCK, Del.- Signs that read "road closed" or "water on road" can be seen throughout parts of Kent and Sussex counties.
That is because of Wednesday's storm, which packed high winds and heavy rain, causing massive flooding in coastal communities.
Pat Saurman lives in Kitts Hummock just feet away from the beach.
"There telling us now that winds are only 40 mph. They're telling us we're going to have winds up to 60 mph. At that rate you feel like you're in the back of a truck," said Saurman.
Little Creek volunteer firefighters went door-to-door in the beach community making sure residents are safe.
Those who live in Prime Hook in Sussex County were given evacuation orders.
The main road leading to beach homes was impassable due to flooding.
"It's going to be a tough night for everyone, but we're trying to work to get another road open," said Jim Westhoff, a spokesman with the Delaware Department of Transportation. "We're working with some landowners so that people can go through some private property to have access to leave in and out, but as you can see this road will be closed for some time."
Some people traveling through Milton said Wednesday's storm was nothing but overwhelming.
"Oh my gosh! It is wild. I've never seen wind and cold and rain without it being a blizzard," said David Czepukaitis of Cape Henlopen.
"I was really hoping for snow today, but I can barely keep my ground," said Zachary Czepukaitis, also of Cape Henlopen.
