LEWES, De.- Torrential rains and wind gusts as high as 60 mph caused damage and power outages in Sussex County Wednesday.
Relentless winds decimated billboards off Route 1 in Lewes and caused significant damage to a home under construction in Milton. However, some Sussex County residents weren't impressed.
"It's a normal storm. It's just real windy," says Lakecia Miller of Lewes.
"It's not that bad. We're used to this," says Michelle Meredith of Lewes Beach.
Power crews spent Wednesday afternoon restoring power to businesses that went dark along Route 1. Alex Kotanides, the owner of Pat's Pizzeria on Route 1 in Lewes says his shop lost business when he lost power and was forced to cancel several lunch orders.
"It does happen. You can't really fight mother nature. It's just one of the things that comes with doing business," says Kotanides.
Sussex County Emergency Services are advising residents in low-lying coastal areas to get to higher ground before they are flooded indoors.
