Delaware orders evacuations of all coastal communities

    Governor Jack Markell of Delaware is ordering an evacuation of coastal communities in all 3 counties.  Anyone living within 3/4 of a mile will be affected.  The state is working on maps and will make them available shortly. Tolls are now suspended on the Route 1 bridge through the storm.  Businesses in the affected area are ordered to close. WHYY’s Mark Eichmann is following the story and will have an update shortly.
