Round two of storms are incoming with a tornado watch and coastal flooding.
If you don’t need to go outside don’t, if you live near trees stay as far away as possible. There are a lot of trees down and branches flying through the air. If you have to drive take routes that stay away from forests. I live in the woods, it is pretty crazy out here right now. I’m watching trees bend like toothpicks or reeds in the winds.
You can check local conditions on the Delaware Environmental Observing System around the state. Just select the area and get live conditions from many different stations. Some stations will not have the same wind gusts due to location. The screen shot below is the Indian River Inlet.
Another good live app is Ventusky. Keep up with Hunter Outten at Delmarva WX for local conditions as well, they are on Facebook only.
