Emergency management officials at Jersey Shore prepare for Earl

EDISON - Hurricane Earl is expected to leave a mark on the Jersey Shore.

Monmouth County emergency management officials are advising residents along the shore to have a plan before any big storm hits. Suggested plans include a disaster supply kit with drinking water on hand, medicine, a battery-powered radio and a list or map of evacuation routes.

Emergency coordinators advise residents to be ready to evacuate if necessary and leave if evacuation orders are issued. Coordinators are asking residents to have a home preparedness kit with all important documents. A coordinator suggests having any kind of birth certificates and personal papers. He also suggests that residents back up computer documents.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says parts of New Jersey should expect an inch or more of rain Friday and tropical storm-force winds of up to 40 mph.
