Coastal communities prepare for Saturday's nor'easterPosted: Updated:
Communities along the Jersey Shore are preparing for this weekend's storm.
Officials say they expect to see moderate coastal flooding in Manasquan on Saturday. They are asking residents to prepare now, by moving cars in areas prone to flooding to higher grounds.
The mayor says they have taken out all of the benches and trash cans in areas due to the expected strong winds.
With those winds comes the risk for power outages. The National Weather Service says parts of Monmouth and Ocean Counties could see up to 60 mph gusts.
"We want our residents to be aware of tomorrow's storm in the sense that they should batten down the hatches," says Sherriff Shaun Golden. "Anything loose outside, if you still have patio furniture out and you haven't taken it in for the winter, things like that, please do so. Just be prepared because at the end of the day, if you lose power, you want to have some preparations and planning."
Monmouth County officials want to remind residents to never dial 911 if their power goes out. Instead, contact JCP&L directly.
