 PRESS RELEASE

HURRICANE SANDY PASSES - THE CITY OF REHOBOTH BEACH GETTING BACK TO NORMAL – SEE DETAILS BELOW

 The City of Rehoboth Beach fared quite well during Hurricane Sandy.  As of 9:00 a.m. today Tuesday, October 30, 2012 all restrictions have been lifted in the City.

Trash will be collected in the commercial areas of the city on Wednesday, October 31.  Pick-up in the residential areas will resume the normal schedule with pick-up on the south side of the City on Thursday, November 1 and on the north side on Friday, November 2.

The dunes east of the Boardwalk were eroded with some sea water rolling over them, however they functioned as designed, preventing any damage to the Boardwalk and adjacent properties.  Several trees were blown down at various locations.  There were a few sporadic power outages but the City never totally lost power.  There was street flooding on Wilmington, Delaware and Brooklyn Avenues related to the ongoing storm water outfall issue.  We have a bit of clean up that needs to be accomplished but very little damage to repair.

The businesses and residents of Rehoboth Beach are to be commended and thanked for their cooperation and help during this very trying event.  The City’s employees, as always, performed flawlessly in preparation for Sandy, during the storm, and will get this City back to normal in short order.

We have a great deal to be thankful for - Rehoboth Beach came thorough Hurricane Sandy as well as any in the region and far better than most.  Please remember those who will be coping with the aftermath of this storm for months to come.
