DOVER, Del.- Delaware Department of Transportation crews are finishing final preparations for what officials said is expected to be a major snow event Thursday. With snow totals forecast between 4 and 8 inches statewide, officials said clearing snow from the state;s roadways will be an all day challenge.

Full crews are already in place in New Castle and Kent counties. In Sussex County, 1/4 crews are on the job now and full crews will be in place by 7 a.m., officials said.

This event has started as rain and may turn to ice before snow falls, officials said. They are advising drivers to be prepared for difficult road conditions all day.

  • 'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    'Ghost Pots' Hurting Chesapeake Bay's Blue Crab Population

    Crabbing season is well underway, and that means hundreds of thousands of crab pots are in the Chesapeake Bay catching blue crabs. However, many of those pots can quickly become "ghost" pots, sinking to the bottom of the bay and taking millions of crabs with them. These ghost pots have been a problem in the bay for decades, diminishing the crab population, and potentially costing watermen millions of dollars.

    Historic Seaford Diner Torn Down

    One of the last remaining 1950's diner cars on Delmarva is now nothing but rubble.

    The Seaford Eagle Diner was ripped down Tuesday morning so the owners can re-build a new restaurant on site. Owner Serkan Darilmaz says the diner was in such bad shape that renovating it would've come at an astronomical cost.
