Tornado Hits Lewes
Just got the news that a tornado touched ground and totally destroyed a house in Lewes and damaged fifteen others! The house was located off of New Road, two miles from where I live and my route to work. Too close for comfort!
It's been raining here hard with the winds since two this afternoon. It's still raining hard with a few brief lulls and it is 10:15 PM now. I'm afraid to go to sleep for fear of a tornado tearing the roof off of my house.
I was just talking to my friend Larry in Claymont (upstate Delaware) on FaceTime and he started to hear transformers pop. Sure enough, after about the third pop I lost him.
I've been checking the hurricane storm tracker on Weather.com but it seems that it's stuck right over where we live for the last four hours!
The winds are really picking up now and the lights are flickering. I better post this before I lose power.
