Sea Bright Homes Damaged in 2010 Snowstorm Get More Money

Sea Bright homes that frequently experience flooding during snowstorms and other weather events could soon see a decrease in flood damage thanks to over a million dollars in federal funding.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making available $1,373,964 to Sea Bright through its Hazard Mitigation Grant Program to minimize flood damage caused from the Shrewsbury River.  The money will be used to install a new bulkhead and repair five others in the area damaged during a February snowstorm in 2010. 

“Sea Bright families are still recovering from the effects of the snowstorm that hit the area and destroyed local families’ homes back in 2010.  This funding will help fully repair the damage caused; it will also bolster the relevant public infrastructure to prevent future damage from the regular storms and floods that affect area,”  said New Jersey U.S. Senator Bob Menendez. 

Sea bright residents are frequently under the threat of flooding from high tide events and storms, causing extensive damage over the years.
