Borough of Manasquan, New Jersey


ISSUED JANUARY 22, 2016 12:00 HRS

A voluntary evacuation has been issued for the Tier 1 flood zone which includes low-lying flood prone areas in Manasquan.   Roads will become impassable Saturday due to blizzard conditions and coastal flooding, and the latest storm surge guidance continues to indicate the potential for widespread moderate to low-end major coastal flooding.  

It is recommended that residents in non-elevated structures located in the voluntary evacuation area, particularly the elderly and special needs persons, shut off utilities in their homes and move themselves, vehicles and pets to higher ground until the flooding subsides. Emergency services may not be able to access these areas for an extended period on Saturday.  Given the forecasted blizzard conditions and potential for extensive power outages, even if your residence has been elevated, it is recommended that you leave until the flooding subsides mid-day Sunday.

Due to the severe weather conditions and coastal flooding on Saturday, it is recommended that resident’s leave by tonight.
