Hurricane Sandy has weakened with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph as of 2 p.m., but it is still expected to be a massive and powerful system for the next several days that could strike the Delmarva peninsula at hurricane strength and cause hundreds of thousands of power outages in Maryland. The storm's center is expected to strike the Delmarva early Tuesday before moving to the northwest over Baltimore, according to the National Hurricane Center's 5 p.m. update. Gov. Martin O'Malley declared a state of emergency Friday morning launching statewide storm preparation efforts led by the Maryland Emergency Management agency.

Hurricane Sandy is a category 2 storm with 105 mph winds, and though it will be weaker than that five days from now, it could wreak havoc anywhere from the Delmarva Peninsula to Cape Cod, an increasing number of models are showing. The storm is still nearing the Bahamas, but as the days pass and forecasters continue to run various models, a track to the north is still among the potential scenarios. It's also possible the storm will stay out to sea, but as time goes on, it's more models that are predicting a serious East Coast impact, not fewer.

Delmarva's Southern Cafe is set to open Friday in Canton. The new comfort food restaurant, located in the Harbor Enterprise Center, also known as the Broom Factory, will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. And they will serve breakfast at dinner, if you get my drift. On the menu - biscuit sandwiches, baked cheese skillets, country-fried rib eye, cheesy shrimp and grits, burgers and Tenderjack's chicken tenders, a specialty at Tenderjack's, the Virginia-based restaurants Delmarva's owners, Paul Stratmeyer and David Levitt, have a share in. Levitt was an owner of the Tenderjack's in Leesburg, Va., with two other partners.

Sea level rise along the mid-Atlantic coast made headlines over the weekend, as Gannett newspapers on the Delmarva Peninsula and in New Jersey launched a series of stories examining how climate change could swamp shorefront homes and resort communities, hamper farming and even contaminate municipal water supplies. Scientists say the Atlantic coast from around Boston to North Carolina is in a "hot zone" where sea level is expected to rise even faster than elsewhere as a result of the planet's warming and related changes in ocean currents.

Single-A Delmarva infielder Nicky Delmonico was named the Most Valuable Player of tonight's South Atlantic League All-Star Game in Charleston, S.C. Delmonico, the Orioles' No. 6-ranked prospect by Baseball America, played a key role in the North's 3-2 win, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. The 19-year-old Delmonico hit a one-out infield single to shortstop in the fifth inning, then scored two batters later on Kevan Smith's RBI double to left. Delmonico then laced a one-out double to right, moving to third on an error by South second baseman Delino DeShields.

A new restaurant named Delmarva's Southern Cafe will open this spring in Canton's Harbor Enterprise Center, also known as the Broom Factory. Delmarva's is scheduled to open sometime this summer, according to David Levitt, a partner in the new business. Levitt, a food-indusry veteran, is also a partner in a Leesburg, Va. restaurant named Tenderjacks. Delmarva's will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, Levitt said, and will operate as a fast-casual restaurant, the kind where you order at a counter but the food is brought to your table.
