Oceanport Calls For Mandatory Evacuations

Oceanport:   At the present time evacuations are voluntary.   Oceanport will place a State of Emergency in affect at noon today, Sunday, October 28th.   Mandatory evacuation may be required for the evening high tide at 9:59PM, Sunday night.

Evacuations will be mandatory for both tides on Monday - 10:19AM and 10:40PM, unless conditions change.
Tuesday will have to be determined in the next day or so, depending on the storm's position.

To comply with the directive issued by the Oceanport OEM for mandatory evacuations the following streets have been identified.


The letter Y is for Full Evacuation, covers the whole street; the letter P is partial and explains the section of street requiring evacuation.

This identification is based on mapping and the anticipated weather conditions on present information. This information could change for better or worse within the next 48 hours. That will not be enough time for you to take the necessary actions to secure your home and travel to a safe location. It is requested that you stay with family or friends, but shelters are available as a last resort.

Once the storm as arrived, first responders will be pulled off the road to await the storms passing. They will not be sent out for rescue operations during that time. Those individuals who have not evacuated must remain in place and await rescue at a later time.

Potential continues for a very dangerous autumn storm system to affect the region early next week.

• This storm will be associated with what is currently Hurricane Sandy. This storm, if it moves toward us, will bring multiple threats to the region:

• Strong damaging wind gusts

• Extremely heavy rainfall

• Major flooding along streams and rivers

• Major coastal flooding (full moon occurs on October 29)

• The eventual track of this storm will determine the area which is impacted. This far out in time, there is still some uncertainty with the storm track. However, the likelihood of the storm affecting our region has once again increased over the past 24 hours.

Things to focus on about this storm

•A very large region will be affected by very strong winds.

•Reflecting its tropical beginnings, very heavy rainfall will occur with the storm.

•The storm will be slow moving. This worsens the impact for coastal flooding as it will affect multiple high tide cycles. This worsens the potential for heavy rainfall inland and increases the risk of major river flooding.

•The area affected will be determined by the track of the storm. There is still some uncertainty about the track of the storm. However, the threat to our region has once again increased over the past 24 hours. The potential for the core of the storm to have extremely strong winds and torrential rainfall has also increased.

Things you need to think about now

•Engage in preparedness activities. Review your Family Emergency Plan and update as needed.

•Be prepared to evacuate if local officials instruct you to do so.

•Be prepared for potential long-term power outages.

•Leaves! There a lot of leaves on the ground. Leaves are excellent material to clog/block storm drains, worsening local/neighborhood flooding. Residents, please get leaves and any other obstructing materials away from storm drains before this storm arrives. DPW is collecting as much as possible prior to storm, but your cooperation is needed.

Additional Info will be provided as it becomes available.
