Mayor, Police Chief Order Mandatory Evacuations Of Waterfront Communities

Residents east of Bayview Avenue, on the riverfront and Barnegat Bay must be out by noon on Monday

Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. and Police Chief Karin T. DiMichele have extended the mandatory evacuation order to include waterfront homes east of Bayview Avenue or within 1,000 feet of the Barnegat Bay and the Toms River.

"If they choose to stay and not adhere to the warnings...emergency services will have to hold back," DiMichele said.

Residents in those areas have until noon on Monday to leave.

Berkeley police will be going door to door to have residents who don't want to leave sign a statement that they understand emergency services may not be able to reach them, the chief said.

"There are no guarantees," Amato said.

Residents not staying with family or friends can go to three regional shelters in Ocean County - the Pine Belt Arena at Toms River High School North, 1245 Old Freehold Road; Pinelands Regional Middle School and Southern Regional High School in Manahawkin. Toms River North and Pinelands are animal friendly, Southern Regional is not.

DiMichele urged residents who can stay with family and friends to do so, rather than heading to the shelters.

"We need to use the shelters for people who have no place else to go," the chief said.

The worst of the storm is expected to hit Monday night into Tuesday. As a precaution, DiMichele is urging residents who evacuate to pack enough supplies for a few days.

The water level in the Bayview Avenue area in Bayville has already started to rise, the chief said.

"You can really see a significant difference in the water levels over a few hours," she said.

Residents in lowlying areas who need a place for their cars may park them at the Central Regional Middle School off Forest Hills Parkway in Bayville, Amato said.

Come back to Berkeley Patch soon for more information on this developing story.

Does anyone need animal help? I am a Humane Police Officer from Last Chance Ranch Animal Rescue in PA who spent a week after Katrina in the floods of New Orleans. We can help with evacuations and supplies if anyone is in need in shelters or homes. lori@lastchanceranch.org

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way.

There are many deep breathing exercises you can learn to strengthen the intercostal muscles, abdominal wall http://coachfactoryoutletonsell.com muscles and lower back muscles which will all enable you to keep your diaphragm in a flexed position. A flexed diaphragm gives the singer the control of a resistant, steady breath necessary for effortless singing techniques. The air maintained in the lungs is the force and power underneath the breath released for sound.
