  • Gov. Jack Markell has lifted the state of emergency and Level 1 driving warnings for Kent and Sussex counties.
    The declaration for Kent County ended at 6 p.m. followed by Sussex at 8 p.m., March 3.
    Forecasts indicate temperatures across most of Delaware will drop to single digits overnight, meaning wet roads are likely to freeze. Drivers should continue to exercise caution if they must travel. DelDOT will continue to plow and salt roads as necessary and Code Purple locations have been activated across the state.
    “Thousands of state and local government workers have been working across Delaware throughout the duration of this event and we are incredibly grateful for their efforts,” Markell said. “As precipitation comes to an end across the state, our focus turns to the extremely low temperatures that are expected overnight. Motorists should continue to be careful, as snowy and icy spots still exist.”
