New Jersey has declared a State of Emergency starting Sunday at 7:00pm due to the winter storm; all State offices will be closed.
The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Warning for Avalon for Monday morning through Tuesday afternoon. Moderate tidal flooding is expected at time of high tide, especially during the Monday morning high tide. There is also a Wind Advisory in effect Monday for wind gusts approaching 50mph.
High tide at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge will occur Monday will at 10:17am, and again at 10:54pm. Tuesday’s first high tide occurs at 11:05am. Streets prone to tidal flooding may be compromised, including portions of the Dune Drive business district, portions of Ocean Drive, and other areas. If you live on a street that floods during storm events, consider moving your vehicle to another section of Avalon in advance of tomorrow morning’s high tide.
Exercise caution while driving through this event as snow, ice, and rain are all expected. Turn around, don’t drown, never drive on a flooded street.
