Ocean City


OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Emergency officials in Ocean City are warning residents to brace for a nor'easter that could bring moderate flooding to the resort city as it rakes the East Coast.


Ocean City's Emergency Services says there could be flooding downtown through Thursday.


Officials assured residents, however, that predicted flooding would be much less than the resort experienced during Superstorm Sandy.


Delaware


DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware officials are bracing for the possibility of flooding and more beach erosion along the southern coast from a nor'easter that is hitting the East Coast barely a week after Superstorm Sandy.


The storm also was expected to bring two to five inches of snow to northern Delaware, prompting a winter storm warning from the National Weather Service and forcing some schools to cancel after-school activities Wednesday.


A high wind warning and a coastal flood warning were in effect for Sussex County through Thursday morning, with possible wind gusts as high as 60 mph and tidal flooding in low-lying areas.


Sussex County officials said flooding is likely along Route 1 north of the Indian River inlet and in low-lying areas such as Oak Orchard and Long Neck.
