Wilmington police reported that some roads in and around the downtown area were impassable Thursday morning because of standing water, affecting the morning commute.

Flooding also closed the Claymont train station Wednesday night, but the station was reopened Thursday morning for southbound SEPTA trains. Northbound serviced was expected to resume later Thursday morning.
