New Jersey Shore Hurricane Irene Information Directory

Bookmark and Share  POLITICS 24/7 is receiving a number of questions regarding the circumstances in the many different municipalities. With over 645 of them, establishing precise and up to date information regarding each one of them is a task too big for one person. I will do my best to answer any questions there may be or direct individuals to the proper entities to contact for answers to their questions.

In the mean time I have compiled what should be a good start for getting information regarding Hurricane Irene that is specific to you and your location.

The very first site that I suggest you take a look at is Jersey Shore Hurricane News .   It is a Facebook page that is being run by a few concerned citizen.  Here you are asked to post information you become aware of, particularly if it is news peratining to conditions or orders made by local authorities.  But you will also find good information for yourself and may find answers to many of your own questions.

Public Service and Emergency Assistance Phone Numbers

3 digit dialing codes provide easy dialing for New Jersey consumers needing to reach various public services or obtain emergency assistance.

Municipal Web Sites

Below is a directory of  New Jersey municipalities in alphabetical order.   To find your municipality’s website, click on the letter which the municaplity begins with.  Then click on the name of that municipality.  These links may or may not be “official” pages for these towns. They contain some useful information about the municipality and its surrounding area and if those that are official sites, will provide you with warnings or at least the numbers of the proper authorities and management teams that can provide you with the information you need.

What to do when a storm is APPROACHING

  • Pay Attention To Weather Forecasts
  • Listen For Official Instructions
  • While You Are Waitingto Receive Official Instructions
  • Evacuation Orders : Mandatory vs. Voluntary
  • Pay Attention To Weather Forecasts

 The last thing I would like to advise people to do is not panic.  If you prepare your emergency kits and take all the precautions or heed all evacutation warnings now, rather than later, you will be fine.  Stressing out over the material things in your life, is not worth risking your life.  So err on the side of caution.
