2nd Blizzard in a week devastates the region - Dagsboro Area

Monday, June 8, 2015
As crews were still on duty from the 1st blizzard that hit the region on February 5th, a 2nd blizzard dumped 8-10 additional inches on the Dagsboro area & created whiteout conditions. Crews ran 13 calls in addition to several assist EMS calls. A taskforce consisting of a DOT plow, DE National Guard, DSP & SCEMS Medic were staged at the DVFD on Thursday & Friday. Some areas in the Dagsboro area had snow drifts approx. 6 ft. making most secondary roads completely impassible with out the assistance of a DOT plow or Nation Guard 5 ton truck. The DVFD maintained crews around the clock from Friday February 5th when the 1st blizzard hit until the morning of Sunday February 14th.
