HARVEY CEDARS - The Ocean County Office of Emergency (OEM) Management is urging everyone to take the threat of Hurricane Sandy seriously.

The OEM met this afternoon to discuss preparations and it's telling people in the area to also be prepared.

Many have been stocking up on supplies and getting ready for whatever Sandy sends this way.

"Hey, you can't mess with Mother Nature," said Fawn Lake resident Kevin Bustard.

OEM is also warning area residents that there's a danger of back-bay flooding because Noreasters are slow-moving and can dump a lot of rain. There will also be a full moon Monday night, raising the tide even higher.
