Township: Wait for FEMA Flood Elevation Maps Before Planning Construction

Maps are expected to be received by Toms River officials on about Dec. 12

Toms River officials caution that residents with storm damaged properties should review upcoming preliminary flood elevation maps before they begin rebuilding plans. 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is expected to issue the maps on or around Dec. 12, according to a news release issued on the township's website

"Based on this new information and in light of the short time frame involved, the Township strongly recommends that property owners review the new flood elevation maps once they are issued, prior to moving forward with their rebuilding plans," the release reads.

Residents who seek to rebuild their damaged homes within the same footprint as where the original stood will be permitted to do so, according to the township. Those who want to rebuild are asked to contact Toms River's planning office at 732-341-1000, ext. 8354 for more information.

Barrier island storm debris collections began on Wednesday and officials ask that residents do not use township-issued robo cans for that refuse. 

"Storm debris is being collected by a private contractor, through an agreement with Ocean County consistent with FEMA regulations, using machinery designed to collect loose bulk waste. The Township robo cans are not compatible with this system," the release reads.

Crews are emptying cans that have already been filled; once cleared, the township requests that they are not used until regular trash collection again begins.

Nancy, many churches in the area have groups going out. Samaritan's Purse is going out cleaning houses - you can contact them through Grace and Peace Church. And Calvary Chapel in Old Bridge has a relief group. I will try to post the links for you. http://www.ccob.org/page.asp?id=relief http://www.graceandpeace.org/resources/SamaritansPurseWO.pdf

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".
