The Jersey Shore is gearing up for a major storm that will dump a ton of rain, some snow and dangerously high winds. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know.


Threat to Sandy Recovery Areas

 
 

Many areas of the Jersey Shore that have already been hard hit by Sandy will be dealing with major rain and wind. Already vulnerable areas of the Shore could take another beating. Setbacks to "rebuild" areas are a possibility.

 

Powerful Winds

 
 

A high wind watch is also in effect from Wednesday through Thursday for north winds that could pack gusts up to 55 mph.

 

Heavy Rain and Wet Snow

 
 

The biggest threat now is strong winds and rain that could become wet snow; the National Weather Service has issued a coastal flood watch for the entire Jersey shore from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday evening. Meteorologist Alan Kasper is expecting at least several inches of wet snow by early Thursday morning.

 

Coastal Flooding

 
 

Moderate tidal flooding is expected, with pockets of major flooding possible. Toms River and Brick Townships are asking residents in flood-prone areas to voluntarily evacuate as this storm takes aim.

Point Pleasant Boro of Emergency Management sent out a release urging residents to prepare, not panic, for the impending storm. Residents in areas that are  prone to flooding should take the necessary steps to protect themselves and property. This includes but is not limited to moving vehicles to higher ground and voluntarily evacuating until the storm has passed.

 

Timing and Planning Ahead

 
 

The worst of the wind and precipitation is expected to affect the Jersey Shore midday Wednesday through the early morning hours of Thursday. Plan your commuting accordingly to avoid flooded or dangerous areas.
