Sussex County Residents Cope with High Snowfall

Posted:

LEWES, De. - Many people woke up Wednesday morning to 6 to 8 inches of snow in Lewes. 

DelDOT Spokesman James Westhoff told WBOC that there were 500 trucks working through the night, and that the progress had been substantial by the morning. Chuck Donohue, owner of Lewes Fishhouse said a lot of work remained though to clean up his property. 

"It'll probably take me about two hours to do this lot," he said as he pushed a snow-blower through his parking lot. "Be some time to get all the snow removed to where it's drivable and passable."

Donoue's concerns are shared by many other drivers and residents in the area, who were surprised by this storm. 

Delaware State Police told WBOC that Sussex County had more accidents than both Kent and New Castle counties during this storm. From 9:00pm Tuesday evening to 1:00pm Wednesday afternoon, there were 19 accidents, including three that caused minor injuries.

Michael Reeves, of Lewes said he was not expecting the snow at all. He was planning to go to the doctor with his wife Wednesday morning, but was forced to cancel the appointment due to the snow. 

"Getting up at 6:30 cause the dog needed to go out, and finding 8 inches on the back porch on the yard was a very big surprise," he said.
