Officials urge residents to leave by Wednesday at 3 p.m., "at the latest."
The following announcement from Middletown Township Office of Emergency Management was released around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The National Weather Service reports that a Nor’easter is expected to impact our area on Wednesday, November 7th.
Due to compromised flood control features such as dunes, Middletown Township has issued a mandatory evacuation order from Keansburg to Atlantic Highlands from Route 36 to the bay.
We urge that you leave by 3:00 pm on Wednesday at the latest.
High winds will likely cause a problem with flying debris and downed wires; as a result power loss could occur again township wide.
