Hurricane Jose brings waves to Mid-Atlantic, closing highway in Delaware

While Hurricane Maria threatens the Caribbean islands already devastated by Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Jose is making impact on the Atlantic Coast from the Carolinas to New England.

Delaware transportation officials have closed the bridge on the state's main coastal artery because of a dune breach.

Officials said Tuesday that a breach in the dunes near Conquest Road prompted the closure of the Indian River Inlet bridge to both northbound and southbound traffic Dewey Beach and Bethany Beach.

Officials say the closure will remain in effect until the water has receded to a safe level for motorists.
