UNDATED (WBOC/AP)- Flooding has closed several schools and blocked numerous roads for a second day in a row after heavy rains in parts of Delmarva.
    
Flood warnings and advisories are in effect Friday along much of the Atlantic coast. Some school systems closed on Maryland's Eastern Shore and some schools in Delaware and Virginia's Eastern Shore opened late.

Numerous streets and roads experienced high water and in Salisbury on Friday morning, police closed down the intersection of US Business 13 and Priscilla Street. This led to traffic backups as motorists tried to find alternate routes. 

The heaviest rains in Delaware on Thursday were in Sussex County reports that the University of Delaware's Delaware Environmental Observing System recorded more than 12 inches of rain in Harbeson. The National Weather Service says light rain and drizzle will continue in much of the region Friday, but heavier showers will remain across the Eastern Shore.
