Nor'easter Makes Way up Coast

Posted: Updated:

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- It has been another gray and windy day on Delmarva. A nor'easter is expected to start impacting the coast on Wednesday through the rest of the week. Coastal towns are bracing for the impact as fishermen embrace the rain. 

Town Manager of Dewey Beach Scott Koeing says with every storm, it brings an audience. Koeing says people need to be cautious because there are no lifeguards on duty during the off season.

"The additional higher waves and more wave action attracts many people at times. As a town so we do welcome them but we want them to be careful and use their best judgement," explains Koeing.

On the coast Wednesday you could feel wind gusts up to 30 miles per hour. Throughout the day as the tides rose, waves reached heights up to 6-10 feet. The National Weather Service issued a coastal flood advisory for coastal areas around Sussex County. This advisory remains in effect until Thursday at 11 a.m. The coastal flood watch remains in effect from Thursday afternoon through Friday evening. 

Many fishermen were out on Wednesday fishing along the Indian River Inlet. For fisherman Shawn Ullery he has been fishing for 40 years. Ullery is visiting from Mulberry, Florida and he says not even inclement weather could keep him away from doing what he loves. 

"Fishing is a main part of life in Florida and up here. I don't get the chance to fish in this time of weather very often. I am usually used to fishing in nice and sunny weather," mentions Ullery.

Ullery says the best times to fish are the day before and the day after a storm. As the storm starts to brew up the coast, Ullery and other fishermen will still be out there trying to make a big catch.
