From Gov. Jack Markell: "With Sandy’s impending arrival tomorrow bringing sustained 30-40 mph winds in the morning, heavy rains and wind throughout the day and limited visibility for motorists, Governor Jack Markell ordered statewide Level Two driving restrictions beginning at 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 28.

According to state law, a Level 2 Driving Restriction provides that no person shall operate a motor vehicle on Delaware roadways other than essential personnel. Essential personnel includes those employees necessary to maintain the core functions of government and maintain health and safety by providing utility services, healthcare services, and food and fuel deliveries. In addition, some private employers have received a waiver from the Delaware Emergency Management Agency for essential employees.
