People commuting from the Salisbury area are encouraged to travel via US.13S to US.113N through Pocomoke or US.50E to US.113S through Berlin.

Additionally, as of 4:30 Sunday, the following roadways remain closed due to either flooding or damage:

-Porters Crossing Road

-Whiton Crossing Road near Queponco Road

-Purnell Crossing Road

-Red House Road in the area of Creek Road and Pennewell Roads

Those commuting to Snow Hill are urged to leave extra travel time and remain aware of the possibility of standing water.

That's Sirman Dr., not Sermon Road. There is no Sermon Road in Worcester County. Actually, the Rt 12 washout is just South of West Hills Dr, where the little stream called Mt Olive Branch used to go under the road. Now it goes through it.
