UPDATE: New Round of Mandatory Evacuations Ordered in Brick As Nor'Easter Approaches

Nor'easter threatens several mainland areas of township

Numerous mainland areas of Brick Township were ordered to evacuate Monday night due to an impending nor'easter that threatens to bring high winds, tides and heavy rain to neighborhoods already battered by Hurricane Sandy.

The Brick Township Office of Emergency Management is monitoring a Nor’ Easter that has the potential to strongly impact the township with high winds, storm surge and flooding, Brick Police Sgt. Keith Reinhard said Monday night.

The order has been issued for all residents who reside in low lying waterfront areas of town that are prone to flooding and/or storm surge by Tuesday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m.

The mandatory evacuation order includes, but is not limited to:

  • Midstreams neighborhood East of Jordan Rd.
  • Area of Island Dr. in Cedarcroft
  • North & South Dr. (Metedeconk)
  • Princeton Ave. East of Beaver Dam Rd.
  • Cedarbridge Manor East of Lions Lane
  • Vanada Woods
  • Eagle Pass
  • Sandy Point
  • Tilton Rd
  • Cranberry Cove
  • Swan Point Park including Beaton and Gale Rd.
  • Baywood East of Pilot Dr. and Mandolay Dr.
  • Cherry Quay South of Tiller Lane
  • Sailors Quay off of Pleasant Dr., North Pier and South Sailors Quay
  • Waterfront Property in Mallard Point
  • Seaview Dr. & Seaview Ave in Seaview Village
  • Shore Acres

Residents whose homes do not fall into the mandatory area, but have been damaged or affected by Hurricane Sandy are being strongly encouraged to evacuate, Reinhard said.

Residents are encouraged to seek shelter with friends and/or family who are in a safe location. For those residents that require transportation to a shelter, you can contact the call center at 732-262-1234. 

The nor'easter is expected to affect the Shore area Wednesday morning through Thursday morning. The National Weather Service office in Mt. Holly has issued a high wind watch for that time period, during which it said wind could be sustained at 20 to 35 m.p.h. with gusts reaching 65 m.p.h.

For the evacuation near Baywood, does this include Waterside Gardens? Alot of my complex' cars and apartments were ruined, it was really bad in there. We are on day 8 of no power. I just wanna double check and be safe and see if this includes us. Waterside Gardens off of Baywood/Drum Point.

The list of streets/neighborhoods was provided to us by the police department. For very specific questions, I would refer people to the township's storm hotline, which is 732-262-1234.

Is there a way you can put a DIRECT link on here to be able to post this article on one's FB home Page? I'd like to share this on my page, but I could not do it from here, or from your own FB Page. Could not copy & paste either. Some people are not aware of PATCH, and won't read this. Help??

Hi, Where is the SAYC sign. We would like to collect it to see if it is salvagable.
Brian Harris November 06, 2012 at 10:07 PM
Will the police let you back into the neighborhood during the evactuation time if you leave for any reason?
John E November 06, 2012 at 11:16 PM
My wife who is in the Air National Guard out of McGuire Air Base was told today she is being activated starting this Saturday Nov 10th..her Commander told her that her unit will be assigned to Brick NJ 24/7 until orders change.
Aunt Jo November 06, 2012 at 11:32 PM
Thank you Patch for this news. My sister lives in Brick and was not aware of the evacuation. It was only through your article that I was finally able to get her on her cell and let her know. She, like many in Brick, has had no power for DAYS! No phone, no internet, no way of knowing what was happening. Thank you again. All residents of Brick, please be safe!
Tom Cular November 07, 2012 at 01:34 AM
A couple of questions regarding mandatory evacuation: If these folks don't have power or phones as a result of Sandy, how do they know? Has the Brick PD or OEM personnel notified them personally by knocking on their doors?
Aunt Jo November 07, 2012 at 12:30 PM
To Tom Cular - My sister had no idea about the evacations. Cell phone service is sporadic! She had said she hadn't seen one police car, one fire truck, one Red Cross truck in her neighbord. I called the OEM in Brick from North Jersey and told them that she had had no power for DAYS - no phone for DAYS - no internet for DAYS! I asked if they were going to send someone through the neighborhood with a bullhorn. There was complete silence on the line. I was finally able to get through to her on her cell and she evacauted. Had it not been for Patch, my sister would be alone in Brick.

Is Breton Woods included in the mandatory evacuation?
~Barb~ November 07, 2012 at 03:44 PM
There is no more barrier island (with dunes) to protect you.
totes magotes November 07, 2012 at 03:45 PM
Um so why did we evacuate last night? I wake to light rain, this is insane last thing I wanted to do was leave my house again and now you've pushed me out a day early...thanks. I live on the water I've seen rain and wind whip up a good bit but have never felt the need to leave my home! Storm surge or not, what more damage can be done?! After this do me a favour, let me just stay in my own home!
Tom November 07, 2012 at 05:18 PM
What is the earliest that we can return to our homes?
Brick Resident 2 November 08, 2012 at 02:06 AM
Too bad all these storms didn't take out the street cameras
Brick Resident 2 November 08, 2012 at 02:25 AM
Hope we had plenty of insurance to cover damage at new marina and park at mantoloking bridge
Tommy November 10, 2012 at 05:15 PM
Doubt it, Not this size of a storm. This is something the East Coast was not ready or prepared for.

Chinese parents send their children http://www.coachoutletonlinebd.com/ Coach Outlet Online to private U.S. high schools as a strategic decision to strengthen their candidacy for elite U.S. universities, http://www.guccibeltsoutletstores.net/ Gucci Belt Lin said. A growing number also want their children to lead happier lives rather than have them consumed by http://www.coachoutletonlinewo.com/ Coach Factory Outlet preparing for the gaokao in China the one-time, high-stakes national university entrance examination that http://www.guccibeltsoutletstores.net/ Gucci Belts is the sole determinant of admission.The factors driving mainland Chinese to study in the United States come into http://www.coachfactoryoutletpo.com/ Coach Factory Outlet play much earlier, Lin said, noting an influx of foreign Chinese students into private U.S. secondary http://www.coachoutletonlinefc.org/ Coach Outlet Online schools, starting around 2005.The goal of education in mainland China is to prepare you to take the gaokao. http://www.coachoutletwr.com/ Coach Online Outlet Everything else is secondary. In China, you would put the gaokao in the center.whereas...in American education, http://www.coachoutletloa.com/ Coach Factory Online you put the student in the center, and everything else serves the best interests of the student. It's not http://www.coachoutletonlineyu.net/ Coach Outlet Online exclusively about college.

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.

One thing which will hint at the right formula to this concern about UGG boots is to observe the history of whatever we now call UGG boot footwear. UGG boots will be originally from Modern australia. The first denote be made is definitely that UGG boot footwear are nothing innovative. They were included in World War I actually by pilots as an easy way of keeping heated in unpressurized cabins of your planes they ended up being flying. Also they were included in past decades by way of surfers and swimmers that allows you to quickly warm their feet after the match or exercising. Now in 2010 UGG boots absolutely are a high fashion movement. Who would that is amazing boots http://www.putuggon.com/ Ugg Boots Outlet On Sale,Cheap to Buy with Ugg! - UGG Online Store which were never meant to be worn while in front of other people for any shear shame of their total UGGly appearance would become a product or service of high design amongst people everywhere.
