Advisory - August 5, 2020:

Hurricane Isaias - Wednesday Morning Update

Yesterday between the late morning and the early evening hours, Neptune felt the impact from passing Hurricane #Isaias as strong gusts of wind toppled trees, blocked roads, damaged homes, and knocked out power. While we didn't see as much rain as the western half of the state, the strong winds were enough to leave more than 1,800 Neptune Township residences without power as of early Wednesday morning.

Power Outage Update:

• We strongly recommend that you continue to report outages directly to JCP&L by calling 1-888-544-4877, text OUT to 544487, and online at firstenergycorp.com. JCP&L has not provided us with any specific restoration times, and while they do have crews working in our area their current priorities are restoring critical facilities and repairs which can restore large areas. Individual homes without power (not entire streets/neighborhoods) are being advised that it may take several days for restoration. Please remember that Neptune Township has no control over power restoration, do not call 911 to report power outages unless you have an emergency.
• Residents running generators to power their home are urged to place their generators outside, away from any structures. Generators should never be placed inside your home, your garage, nor anywhere else enclosed even if doors/windows are open.
• JCP&L is providing free ice and water to those without power at Shoprite on Neptune Blvd, and at many other locations throughout the county.
• EMS and OEM staff are contacting those on our list who may have special needs or critical medical devices to ensure all needs are being met.

Tropical Storm Isaias - Monday Afternoon Update

Mon, 08/03/2020 - 12:51pm
Advisory - August 3, 2020:

Tropical Storm Isaias - Neptune Monday Noon Update

• Summary: A #TropicalStormWarning is in effect for our area as #Isaias moves north along the coast, and is expected to regain #Hurricane status later Monday afternoon. The worst of the wind and rain will be felt Tuesday afternoon and evening, but the storm will begin in our area early Tuesday morning, so any preparations should be completed today. Our primary concern from this storm will be strong wind with gusts up to 70 mph and sustained winds around 30-40 mph. Currently, Neptune is taking action to prepare for the storm by clearing drains, collecting bulk trash, and visiting businesses to check on any outdoor #COVID19-related tents which may need to be removed or secured.

• Hazards and Timing:

- Wind: Gusts over 70 mph and sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph has the potential to send any loose outdoor items airborne, as well as causing downed trees and power outages. The worst of the wind is expected Tuesday afternoon into the early evening, with the center of the storm passing by after sunset.

- Rain: A #FlashFloodWatch is in effect as heavy rain should bring us 1 to 3 inches throughout the day, with greater amounts inland. This will likely cause sporadic roadway flooding in low-lying spots such as RT 66, 33, and 35, as well as causing pooling along many other roads.

- Coastal Flooding & Marine: Coastal flooding will be possible in typically flood-prone areas at high tide between 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM on Tuesday. Flooding should be minor and limited to what we would typically see during a moon/storm high tide. On the beachfront and ocean, extremely hazardous conditions will exist including strong #RipCurrents and swells over 11 feet expected in our area. Boaters and beachgoers should avoid going anywhere near the water.

• Actions:

- By Monday night, secure any loose outdoor items, furniture, decorations, and anything else that has the potential to become flying debris and bring in any bulk garbage. Also, move any vehicles away from low-lying, flood-prone areas. This includes those in locations susceptible to coastal flooding.
- If you operate a business that has placed any tents or tables outside due to pandemic restrictions, ensure these items are removed or fully secured so they can withstand the strong winds. NTPD officers will be visiting many of these locations on Monday to check on tents.
- Charge your important electronic devices in the event of a power outage.
- If you do experience a power outage without observing an emergent situation (fallen tree, downed wires) please report it directly to JCP&L, not by calling 9-1-1.
- If you do observe a hazard such as flooded roads, fallen trees, or hanging wires, call 9-1-1 to report it.
- If you're on the road during the storm, use extra caution. Several locations along RT 66, RT 33, and RT 35 can quickly flood during heavy rain and cause extremely hazardous driving conditions. Take it slow, and keep an eye on the road.
- Stay up to date with current information by monitoring your local weather forecast, following @NeptuneOEM on Facebook and Twitter, and sign up for text message alerts by texting "NeptuneAlert" to 888-777.

In mountain areas, destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed. - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out.

* TORNADO - LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: - Situation is somewhat favorable for tornadoes - THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY THAT INCLUDES TYPICAL FORECAST UNCERTAINTY IN TRACK, SIZE AND INTENSITY: Potential for a few tornadoes - The tornado threat has remained nearly steady from the previous assessment. - PLAN: Emergency plans should include the potential for a few tornadoes. - PREPARE: If your shelter is particularly vulnerable to tornadoes, prepare to relocate to safe shelter before hazardous weather arrives. - ACT: If a tornado warning is issued, be ready to shelter quickly. - POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events. - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power and communications disruptions. - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.
