Floodwater Causes Driveway to Collapse in Dagsboro

Posted: Jun 13, 2018 6:12 PM Updated:

DAGSBORO, Del.- The torrential rain hit so hard this past weekend, a driveway is now crumbled to pieces. 

"it was definitely an experience," says Janet Ammons.

An experience Ammons and her family now have to live with. 

A ditch is located in front of Ammons' driveway in Dagsboro. 

Janet says the ditch was so full, the stormwater had nowhere to go, causing her driveway to collapse. 

"Trapped, we feel trapped," says Ammons. 

Thirteen-year-old Christopher Layfield says he hopes help arrives sooner rather than later. 

"I fear I can fall in because it's so deep," says Layfield. 

Their neighbor Valerie Marshal is in disbelief of how deep the hole is. 

"If it rains right now, you don't even know it's is going to collapse or what, you don't know. and that's sad," says Marshal. 

Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control officials say they are currently reviewing the issue.
