SALISBURY, Md.- (AP/WBOC)- Some schools are closed and many roads are impassable after heavy overnight rains deluged parts of Maryland, Virginia and Delaware.
    
WBOC Chief Meteorologist Dan Satterfield said Thursday that 4 to 8 inches of rain fell overnight through Thursday morning. Most of it was concentrated in the Salisbury and surrounding area in Wicomico County, Md. Other areas that received high rainfall totals included Berlin, Assateague and Public Landing in Worcester County, Md; Princess Anne in Somerset County and lower Sussex County, Del.
    
More rain was expected Thursday and high tides in the evening hours will contribute to any flooding that occurs, Sattferield said.
    
Schools in Accomack County, Virginia, are closed as well as the Somerset County schools in Maryland. Wicomico County Public Schools dismissed school two hours early.  
    
Hundreds lost power in Wicomico County, Maryland Thursday morning. A flash-flood watch is in effect for Sussex County, Delaware.
