Deluge in Sussex and Eastern Shore

Yesterday Sussex County, Delaware and parts of the Eastern Shore of Maryland were deluged. In Georgetown, DE over eight inches of rain fell. In Laurel, there were almost six inches and in Bridgeville, seven. Federalsburg, MD, west of Seaford, saw over eleven inches.

Many roads and bridges flooded out, and some people have been evacuated from their homes. Cars could be seen floating in some areas, at times with people trapped within. Firemen helped with rescue and evacuation efforts, while the American Red Cross established shelters.

Three stories from the News Journal can be accessed here, here, and here.

Please join with me in prayer, lifting up these people as they return to their homes and evaluate the damage.

That's a lot of rain. I live in Oregon and I know rain, and that's a lot of rain.
