The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for the Borough effective Sunday evening, May 5th.  The Advisory remains in effect from 7:00pm until Monday, May 6th, at 1:00am.

A storm is expected to bring additional rainfall to our region this morning, tapering off in the afternoon.  During high tide, there is anticipated to be minor tidal flooding in low lying areas. High tide will occur at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge Sunday at 9:20pm.  Exercise caution while driving this evening.  Never attempt to drive on any flooded street as this puts you and your vehicle at risk.  Windy conditions are expected late this afternoon and this evening, with sunshine returning on Monday.

AVALON OEM: ONE FINAL CHANCE TO LEAVE AVALON MONDAY

(Avalon, NJ)—The Avalon Office of Emergency Management, under the direction of Mayor Martin Pagliughi, has issued a final Global Connect Reverse 9-1-1 telephone call in the community on Monday afternoon.  The Borough is informing the handful of people who have not evacuated during Hurricane Sandy that they may have one final opportunity to do so during low tide Monday afternoon.

Avalon residents who want to evacuate the Borough can do so only Monday afternoon and only during low tide when streets are passable.  Avalon experienced some significant flooding during the morning high tide event on Monday.  The evening high tide event in Avalon may result in one of the most significant flooding events in Avalon’s history if the current forecast holds true for several hours.

If anyone who is still in Avalon has any questions about a potential exit from Avalon, please call the Avalon Police Department directly at (609) 967-3411.  Please be advised that road closures and flooding on local roads literally changes by the hour during Hurricane Sandy.  Earlier today, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority shut down the Garden State Parkway in both directions from Exit 38 south to Exit 0.

Hurricane Sandy continues to be a strong Category One hurricane and is expected to make landfall close to Avalon.  During the 11:00am advisory on Monday, the National Hurricane Center indicated that Sandy was picking up forward speed and was approaching our region at 18mph.  Significant rain and strong winds are expected during the late afternoon and evening hours.  Major coastal flooding is expected at time of high tide.

Avalon will provide continuous updates on its state of the art emergency management website, www.avalonemergency.org; on ShoreTV Channel 2 for Comcast customers; on the Official Facebook Page for the Borough of Avalon; on 1630AM radio; and via reverse 9-1-1 emergency phone calls via Global Connect.
