Reports are now coming in that power has been resumed along Route 1 and adjoining businesses and neighborhoods.

A massive power outage along Route 1 from Dartmouth Road and Kings Highway near WaWa, Lewes, to as far south as outside Rehoboth began shortly after 5 p.m., ending around 6 p.m., but not before causing major traffic snafus.  Power at all traffic lights, stores and restaurants on both sides of the highway were impacted.
