The National Weather Services says a coastal flood warning remains in effect through noon on Sunday as a second nor'easter moves through the region. Officials say the worst problems could come during high tides Saturday night.

About an inch of rain fell between Friday and Saturday afternoon in Newark, and tides were more than two feet above normal in Lewes. Winds and rain have driven water across roadways in parts of Sussex and Kent counties.

Lewes Mayor James Ford III says residents are getting "a little stir crazy" after three days of rain. He spent time checking on rising waters near homes along the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal.
