LBI set to be a ghost town by tomorrow

Many have started to exit Long Beach Island, even though the mandatory evacuations don't go into effect until 8 a.m. Friday.

News 12 New Jersey saw many exiting the barrier island, but also caught up with some locals who think the mandatory evacuation doesn't apply to them. Authorities insist that the evacuation orders are not just for those who vacation on LBI, but for all on the island.
