Mandatory Noon Evacuation for Parts of Point Boro

There is a mandatory noon evacuation for all Point Borough residents who live south of Bridge Avenue, on any waterway or within 100 feet of the Manasquan River.

That is the dictate coming from Borough emergency and government officials who met this morning at Borough Hall.

Also, all businesses in the entire town must close by 3 p.m.

The evacuation order applies to all residents who live on any waterway, including Barnegat Bay, Beaver Dam Creek, lagoons or within 100 feet of the Manasquan River.

Point Borough High School is open as a shelter. Public schools are closed Monday and Tuesday.

The public is urged to make all non-emergency phone calls, including calls about evacuating, to (732) 899-4935.

On Sunday, officials had contemplated a 4 p.m. Monday deadline for evacuation of vulnerable areas. However, at the Monday morning meeting, officials said the forecast for heavy bands of rain and strong wind is now showing an earlier time frame and it would be better to get residents out earlier.
