Some of the rainfall totals from last night, according to the National Weather Service:
..SUSSEX COUNTY REHOBOTH BEACH 7.21 HARBESON 6.83 BETHANY BEACH 6.39 JONES CROSSROADS 2.84 DELMAR 2.63 NEW JERSEY ..CAPE MAY COUNTY NNW CAPE MAY 5.05 WILDWOOD CREST 4.46 FISHING CREEK 3.13 GREEN CREEK 2.30
Flooding was a major issue in Wildwood Crest, parts of North Cape May, back into Rehoboth. This was due to thunderstorms moving slowly along the Shore due to a low pressure system back in Virginia. These storms continued to nudge slowly along the coast through the night but were unable to move quickly as a high pressure center over New England blocked their progression.
