(March 7, 2020 … 7:45 AM) … Inland the conditions don’t seem so bad, but offshore storm surge never does. The beaches were flooded to the dune line in most areas earlier this morning. You can use the area web cams to check conditions, or just run down to the beach and look. There are big waves and storm surge, but it is pretty mild in comparison to nor’easter conditions.

The DelDOT cams are helpful as well. Beach combing is going to be great this weekend.
There are four DelDOT traffic cameras on The Charles W Cullen Bridge (Indian RIver Inlet Bridge) you can access on the DELDOT app. Use either your phone or computer online, if you screen shoot the camera feed on your phone, you can blow up the picture to see details. The interactive map is easier to use on your phone, but works fine on a computer.
