There was  tornado warning earlier.  We have had serious cloud bursts that flooded  Bethany Beach and the Millville area on 26.  A tornado was seen near Assateague island and a water spout off the coast of the Island as well, photographed by Laura Scharle.  Been a rough day for flash flooding, but at least the warning came quick enough and everyone had an eye on the sky already.  There are a few more storms headed this way but should not be as severe as the initial blasts we just experienced.  We will keep you posted, have a safe and fun day.  On a side note the fishing in the surf and surrounding waters was great until the storm hit and everyone went for cover.  If you find yourself stuck on a beach in a severe storm stay in your vehicle.  If you are on a boat keep an eye out and get to shore is the best protection.  Use a weather app or keep an eye on the Dover Underground Radar.
