Delmarva Soaked on Friday Causing Some High Standing Water

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md.-The rain may have settled by late Friday afternoon but a majority of the day was a super soaker for many people on Delmarva.

"This is awful," said Hannah Hutzell of Salisbury University, "I mean I play lacrosse here and I had practice this morning it's just non-stop."

And with that much rain, there is almost a guarantee for plenty of standing water in some parts.

That included, Lake Street in the west side of Salisbury where high standing water could be seen slowing down plenty of cars.

Some officials with the city said that it's a spot that seems to have that situation just about every time there's a heavy down pour.

It was hard to stop, if not at least slow down while driving along Route 13 northbound. Even with a storm drain, plenty of standing water lined the side of the road. In addition,  parts of Calvert Street dealt with the same situation.

Meanwhile, the soggy day meant a damper on Sarah Falk's plans.

"I'm very upset," Falk said, "I'm going to the beach today so obviously it's not a good beach day, I'm wearing flip flops and it's not comfortable and it's just a Debbie Downer."

And talk about being a good friend, even in the down pour Hannah Raup of Pennsylvania managed to change the oil on her friend Janelle Zavinsky's car which happened to break down on the same day.

"We were pulling out and we were getting ready to go home for the week and it literally just stopped working right there so we figured it's probably the oil," said Raup.

"It was terrible," Zavinsky said, "the firefighters had to push us all the way here."

The city did put out an advisory saying that crews were monitoring road conditions and would barricade any flooded streets in Salisbury.
