Storm Advisory

This is the Long Beach Township Office of Emergency Management contacting you on March 7, 2013 with storm advisory information. The voluntary evacuation notice broadcast for specified ocean front homes on March 6, 2013 has been rescinded. Current weather conditions allow these homes to be repopulated at this time. We ask owners of ocean front homes, without signed beach easements, to report erosion concerns to Long Beach Twp. at 609-361-6632. The forecast calls for minor to moderate flood condition through Saturday. We anticipate flooding on Long Beach Blvd and low lying west side streets. Please monitor weather sources to assist with travel planning and protection of property.

Voluntary Evacuation

The current forecast through March 7th projects beach erosion, rain, snow, high wind and moderate to severe flooding. We recommend a voluntary evacuation of ocean front homes from 72nd Street in Brant Beach to 84th Street in Brighton Beach in addition to ocean front homes in Holgate. Expect, at times, for parts of Long Beach Blvd to be impassable on March 7. The high tide at 5:45 a.m., on March 7 is likely to flood parts of Long Beach Blvd on the south end of the island. Areas which are prone to bay flooding should secure property including moving cars to high ground. Monitor local weather sources and make plans in consideration of the forecast.

Minor tidal flooding is expected along the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay and Delaware River.

Help Is Available For Building To A Higher Standard

TRENTON, N.J. — For many New Jersey homeowners, rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy will mean meeting a higher standard – literally.

Communities up and down the Jersey coast are reviewing new advisory base flood elevation maps published in December by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The maps show how high buildings should be elevated to minimize damage from future flooding.

Building higher means higher costs, but federal resources may be available to help with the additional expense.

Flood insurance policyholders in high-risk areas, also known as special flood hazard areas, can get up to $30,000 to help pay the costs of meeting the requirements of their community's floodplain ordinance. The National Flood Insurance Program includes Increased Cost of Compliance coverage for all new and renewed standard flood insurance policies.
