Sussex could see a foot of rain from Sandy
By Amy Cherry/Rich Deaver

A wind warning goes into effect at 8am Monday until 9am Tuesday up and down Delaware, where significant coastal flooding and heavy rain fall from Hurricane Sandy is expected.

The Sussex County Emergency Operations Director Joe Thomas tells us what we can expect with this storm.

"The current track brings hurricane Sandy back to the Delaware coast with the center passing just over New Jersey. At that time, winds will be sustained to 40-45 miles per hour with gusts up to 65 miles per hour. The storm surge associated with the tides for this event could be three to six feet combined along our Delaware beaches, our Delaware Bay, and also along our Nanticoke and Broad Creek Rivers," says Thomas.
