Delaware prepares for Irene

Delaware is bracing for heavy rains, high winds and possible flooding as Hurricane Irene makes its way to the coast. 

Delmarva Power says it prepares year-round for this type of situation.  Its parent company, Pepco Holdings, has already made arrangements to have workers from other states on standby if necessary.
