DelDOT is advising residents of Prime Hook that access from their community to the mainland is available now via Prime Hook Road, but this condition will change as the tide rises and the storm intensifies. High tide is about 4:30 p.m..
A temporary connection to North Bay Shore Drive while be opened later today until daylight ends at 7 p.m. This connection could close sooner, however, should flood conditions require it, so residents remaining in the area should leave via Prime Hook Road now.
Last evening, DelDOT began urging Prime Hook’s residents and visitors to leave the area for safer locations inland. DelDOT will inspect the condition of Prime Hook Road in the morning.
