OCEAN CITY, Md.  - When it comes to who has the best beach, Ocean City, Maryland has earned some bragging rights.

Travel website TripAdvisor.com has released its top 25 beaches in the United States and Ocean City Beach comes in at number 10, right behind Hanauma Bay, Hawaii and two spots ahead of South Beach in Miami Beach, Florida.

"I think that's amazing. It's quite amazing we ranked higher than them," said Demarius Hardy of Burlington, North Carolina.  "This particular part of the earth is phenomenal  I love what Ocean City offers. I love the Thrashers french fries, the popcorn. All the great things that we have here."
People out enjoying an unseasonably warm day at the Ocean City beach Thursday agreed with that assessment saying the ranking could help shed a positive light on the area.

    Nearly Half of July's Overdoses Were in Sussex County

    The opioid epidemic continues to ravage the nation, including here in Sussex County where nearly half of the deaths from drug overdoses this month are from Delaware's southern-most county. 

    The recent spike has prompted a state warning specifically targeted at heroin users. According to the release, the uptick may be the result of heroin being laced with fentanyl, a synthetic opioid much more powerful than most drugs.
