Prime Hook Refuge Staff Helping Residents Return to Seaside Homes


Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge employees are assisting local residents return to their homes along the Delaware coast. Hurricane Irene washed away a road that crosses the refuge providing access to a seaside neighborhood. Alternate road access has been temporarily opened by state and county emergency management agencies, and the refuge will be available during that time and in the days to follow to shuttle people back to their homes by boat. It will take up to a month for the state to repair Prime Hook Beach Road.
