Floodwaters Begin to Recede in Del. After Storms

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Floodwaters are starting to recede a day after heavy rainfall caused widespread flooding in Kent and Sussex counties.

The National Weather Service says minor flooding continued Saturday morning along the St. Jones River and other streams in the Dover area. The weather service says water levels crested nearly a foot above flood stage by 8:45 a.m.

The flooding was expected to end Saturday evening. A flood warning in Kent County was set to expire at 7:45 p.m.

The Delaware Department of Transportation said that more than 40 roads in Kent and Sussex were closed because of flooding or high water.

Some cars were caught in high waters, and motorists had to be rescued. Just over 7 inches of rain fell in Frankford.
