Officials at the Delaware Emergency Management Agency continue to monitor forecasts from the National Weather Service, reminding residents to be aware of the current weather information and their surroundings over the weekend of May 18-20.

Heavy rains could lead to flash flooding, flooding of rivers, creeks and streams and flooding in poor drainage areas. Along the coast, rising waters could flood roadways, as well as low-lying areas of the shore and back bays.

Most of Delaware has received between 1-3 inches of rain since May 15, and 2-4 more inches are possible through the morning of May 21.

The state continues to be under a flash flood watch through 6 p.m. May 19, along with a coastal flood advisory for the Delaware Bay from 10 p.m. May 18 through 5 a.m. May 19.

Residents should remember to never drive into flooded roadways.

Tune in to local television and radio stations, as well as NOAA Weather radio for current forecasts.
