Tribbitt, Governor of Delaware, proclaimed a State of Emergency to be in existence for that section of the State below the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, including the lower portion of New Castle County and all of Kent and Sussex Counties, because of the curtailment of all rail transportation service in that area as a result of the accident and resulting damage to the Chesapeake and Delaware Railroad Bridge; and
