Nor'Easter Pounding The East Coast

Mother Nature pounded the East Coast Sunday with a Spring Nor'easter.

The storm packed quite a punch - with strong winds, heavy rains and hail. Here on the shore - we're expected to get 1 to 2 inches of rain on average. But by the afternoon - parts of South Carolina had already gotten over 3 inches.
And believe it or not - some areas could even see a touch of the winter. "This storm's going to have lots of damage associated with it, from localized flooding, to beach erosion. And of the back side of the storm, we're looking at heavy wet snow storms that I thinks going to bring down trees and power lines," said Bernie Rayno, a Meteorologist from
ThAt one point during the storm more than 1,500 Delmarva residents were in the dark - the most were in New Castle and Wicomico counties. By 9:00 PM Delmarva Power had restored electricity to all by 400.

The storm also prompted the National Weather Service to issue a coastal flood advisory for the Delaware beaches and parts of Sussex county until midnight Sunday - and Kent and New Castle counties until 5:00 AM Monday.
