In terms of power outages, Sussex County had been hit particularly hard.

Delaware Electric Co-Op reports 206-thousand outages in Sussex County.

Delmarva Power has more than 16-thousand customers out in Sussex.

Delmarva spokeswoman Bridgette Shelton says crews are out there, but they're being hampered by the conditions.

As of 1pm, there were just 19 outages in New Castle County and 154 in Kent County.

Shelton says they're hoping if some areas remain relatively unscathed that they can shift crews to the harder hit areas.

If you fall victim to a power outage at any time during the storm, call Delmarva Power at 1-800-898-8042.
