Point Boro Urging Residents to Move Cars to Higher Ground

Boro officials warn that flooding is anticipated

Point Borough Emergency Management officials are warning residents to move cars to higher ground because flooding is anticipated.

The Emergency Management Facebook page says: "Flooding is anticipated. Please move vehicles to higher ground and take precautions to protect your property and yourselves."

Kiel Arnone, Deputy Coordinator of Borough Emergency Management, said that he, Mayor William Schroeder and Point Boro First Aid Squad volunteers will be in ambulances and fire trucks driving around parts of the Borough, especially those that are flood-prone, and warning residents to move cars and take precautions.

The Borough, like Point Beach, is not asking for voluntary evacuations.

In Mantoloking, police advise on their Facebook page that the town is closed tonight and tomorrow.

The page says: ""Due to the current updates from the National Weather Service, the Borough of Mantoloking will be closed for access tomorrow, December 27. Concerns are ocean wash over, back bay flooding, floating and flying debris. Please check the Mantoloking website for additional information."

The Bay Head police department has the following advisory on its Facebook page:

"We have been watching Winter Storm Euclid (yes, they name these now too) and there is some cause for concern over potential tidal flooding. While OEM is not calling for evacuations, we STRONGLY recommend residents in low-lying areas prone to flooding to move their cars to higher ground as soon as possible.

"Given the flood conditions last week, Euclid could be just as bad. High tide at the Manasquan Inlet is expected at 6:24 PM and in the back bay areas of the Barnegat Bay at 11:04 PM. Play it safe, and let's be careful out there."

I received Patch article at 7:30AM on the 27th. Why bother sending it when it is for the 26th? It gave the impression it was for today the 27th.

J.P. I just emailed you.The story was written and posted last evening, right after Emergency Management provided the info. to me. The story is posted with yesterday's date. When you say you "received" the story, do you mean you received the newsletter today? The newsletters go out daily and sometimes include stories posted the night before as well as those posted early that same morning. The fact that you "received" the story in a newsletter today does not mean that is when story was first posted on Patch. It was posted last night and then included in the newsletters that went out this morning. If you have any further questions about this, please email me at same address you used before, denise.distephan@patch.com and do not continue discussion here. Thank you.
