Storm Report #3 – Tuesday February 17 (11:00am)

Delaware Emergency Management Agency | Date Posted: Tuesday, February 17, 2015



(Smyrna) – Governor Jack Markell ordered State of Delaware offices closed today, during regular business hours 8am to 4:30pm.  Non-essential employees were told not to report to work for this period, while essential employees were to report as scheduled.  Government offices are also closed today in all three counties, as well as the cities of Wilmington, Newark, and Dover.  Delaware Technical and Community College campuses in Wilmington/Stanton, Dover and Georgetown closed, and classes were cancelled at Wesley College’s main Dover campus and at Dover Air Force Base.  Due to winter weather conditions impacting our area, the Wilmington Public Safety Strategies Commission meeting scheduled for tonight has been cancelled.

Statewide Winter Weather Advisories were cancelled by the National Weather Service this morning before the scheduled expiration time, as accumulating snowfall had ended.  The Delaware Environmental Observation Center reports the lowest amount of snow, 2.4 inches, occurred at Newark, with the highest measured amount, 6.3 inches, at Stockley.  Sussex County was hardest hit, with measurements of 5.9 inches at Laurel and Ellendale, while New Castle County got off lightest as snow measured 2.9 inches at Hockessin, Prices Corner, and White Clay Creek.  Dover checked in at 4.0 inches of snow.
