Nor’easter Forces Round Of Evacuations

It is the absolute worst-case scenario for ailing New Jerseyans:  a Nor’easter that will batter the already vulnerable shores.

While most along the coast are still nowhere near back to normalcy from Sandy, a storm arriving in NJ today and churning through Thursday will put on a strain on the devastated areas.

The storm, which is not nearly as a strong as Sandy, will bring winds between 30 and 40 MPH with gusts of 50 possible.  The precipitation will consist of driving rain, wet snow, and a wintry mix in some parts of the state.

While this storm would not cause as much concern nor evacuations under normal circumstances, the damage from Sandy has left coastlines exposed to erosion and flooding with any storm surges.

Brick ordered an evacuation for some residents in low-lying and flood prone areas on Tuesday.

Middletown Township has issued a mandatory evacuation at 3PM today from Keansburg to Atlantic Highlands from Route 36 to the bay.

Toms River is calling for a mandatory evacuation of their barrier islands at noon today.  There are recommending voluntary evacuations of low-lying areas on the mainland.

Point Pleasant Boro is also recommending voluntary evacuations, especially for flood-prone areas.
