Old Lancaster near Brackenville
Mill creek and Nathalie Dr.
Just moments ago as above. Millcreek near Natalie Drive, Hickory Hills
I know its an old post, but there is a dead tree very close to falling on the road on Old Wilmington Rd right across from Cameron Dr. It is not a large tree but its resting on the lower utility wires and going to fall soon. I called DelDOT and they said they won't cut it down until it falls in the road. And it's likely not a concern for Delmarva since it is not on the electric lines.
