Be prepared for heavy rains and flooding on roads.

DelDOT officials will be monitoring the weather forecast through Saturday afternoon, in which some storms could be severe with heavy rain that may cause flooding. There is a potential of the creeks, streams, and drainage areas being flooded, according to a press release issued Friday.
Drivers should be cautious when driving or walking in flood-susceptible areas because:

Six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet. Two feet of floodwater can float your car. Water moving at 2 mph is capable of sweeping a vehicle off a road or bridge. Your vehicle may stall or get stuck in the water. Deer and other wildlife may be driven into the open and cross the highways to escape the rising waters. Motorists should be careful and make sure to look out for storm debris that could still remain on the roadway.
