Areas of southern New Jersey are expected to feel impacts of Hurricane Dorian by Friday when the storm passes south and east of the state.
Fringe effects from the storm may include, rain, gusty winds and beach erosion. Rough surf is also to be expected, with waves at the Jersey Shores possibly reaching 10 feet.
Lifeguards in Brigantine started to prepare the beach Wednesday by removing lifeguard stands and moving boats onto higher grounds.
Officials in Margate says that the main concern is street flooding. Crews filled sandbags at the Public Works Department just in case they're needed.
Margate has a history of what they call “sunny day flooding,” where the low-lying areas end up under water even without a storm.
Margate City OEM Coordinator Chuck LaBarre tells News 12 New Jersey that even though the storm is passing well offshore, it's a reminder of what can happen during hurricane season.
"Know your resources, stay a little closer prepared to weather forecasting,” LaBarre says. “It is hurricane peak, Sept. 10. It should put people a little more on notice and aware of the weather, especially if you don't live in Margate year-round - if people want to keep an eye on their second homes."
Lifeguards are also warning beachgoers to stay out of the water this weekend.
