Sunday, August 2nd, 5:27pm: Tropical Storm Watch, Flash Flood Watch Issued for Stone Harbor

The National Weather Service has issued a Tropical Storm Watch and a Flash Flood Watch for Stone Harbor.  The Tropical Storm watch is in effect for the next 48 hours, and the Flash Flood Watch is in effect from Monday evening through Tuesday evening, August 3-4th.

Tropical Storm Isaias is expected to turn to the north during the overnight hours and bring windy conditions with potentially heavy rainfall from late Monday night through Tuesday evening.  This storm is anticipated to have wind gusts approaching 60mph, with the potential for three inches of rain.  The storm is expected to produce street flooding in poor drainage areas.

Do not attempt to drive on any street that is flooded as this puts you and your vehicle at risk, and causes a wake that damages private property.  Turn around, don’t drown.  There is the potential for power outages during this storm event.  If you experience an outage, call Atlantic City Electric at 1-800-833-7476.  If you have any emergency, dial 911.  Follow all instructions provided by the Stone Harbor Beach Patrol.

By Monday evening, please secure any items that could be prone to strong winds including trash cans, patio furniture, awnings, and umbrellas.  Contractors should secure their job sites Monday evening

Here is the text of the Tropical Storm Watch and the Flash Flood Watch from the National Weather Service.  The graphic shows the forecast track for the storm issued Sunday at 5:00pm from the National Weather Service.  Continue to follow this website and traditional media outlets for updated information.

We will post the latest graphics package from the National Weather Service when it becomes available, and provide updates when warranted.

somewhere within this area within the next 48 hours

 

* LOCATIONS AFFECTED

– Cape May

– Wildwood

 

* WIND

– LATEST LOCAL FORECAST: Equivalent Tropical Storm force wind

– Peak Wind Forecast: 40-50 mph with gusts to 60 mph

– Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with

damage to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few

buildings experiencing window, door, and garage door

failures. Mobile homes damaged, especially if unanchored.

Unsecured lightweight objects become dangerous projectiles.

– Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater

numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several

fences and roadway signs blown over.

storm surge flooding, especially in low-lying vulnerable

areas.

– ACT: Take actions to protect life and property. Prepare to

leave if evacuation orders are given for your area.

 

– POTENTIAL IMPACTS: Limited

– Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along

immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas

farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.

– Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become

overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous

in places where surge water covers the road.

– Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken

foundations. Several places may experience expanded areas

of rapid inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and

poor drainage areas. Some streets and parking lots take on

moving water as storm drains and retention ponds overflow.

Driving conditions become hazardous. Some road and bridge

closures.

execution of emergency plans during tropical events.

– A few places may experience tornado damage, along with

power and communications disruptions.

Thursday, July 9th, 5:31pm: Tropical Storm Warning Issued for Stone Harbor, Southern NJ Coastline

The National Weather Service has issued a Tropical Storm Warning for Stone Harbor and southern coastal New Jersey.  This is an elevation of the Flash Flood Watch that was issued earlier today by the Service.  Tropical Storm Fay has developed in the Atlantic Ocean and will have a direct impact on our community.

The Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect until further notice.  The warning means tropical storm conditions are expected locally over the next 36 hours.  This may include heavy rain, tropical storm force winds, rough surf, rip currents, and the potential for street flooding from heavy rainfall.

The potential exists for winds of 35-45mph with gusts approaching 50mph at times.  Tropical storm force winds are possible through Friday afternoon.  Peak rainfall amounts are expected between two to four inches, with locally higher amounts in some locations.  Rip currents along the beaches are also expected.

Please be prepared to move your vehicle to higher ground if you live in an area of our community that often floods during heavy rainfall events.  Never drive on any flooded street or intersection as this puts you and your vehicle at risk, and causes a wake that can damage private or public property.

If you have any outside objects that are prone to strong winds, bring them inside.  These may include trash cans, umbrellas, and light patio furniture.  Contractors are asked to secure their job sites immediately and secure any loose objects.

Please continue to monitor this storm event on our various media channels, and continue to follow updates on traditional media outlets.

Here is the latest advisory from the National Weather Service:

Thursday, July 9th, 3:28pm: Flash Flood Watch Issued for Stone Harbor

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Stone Harbor and the rest of southern New Jersey due to a developing low pressure system that is expected to move up the eastern seaboard over the next 48 hours.  This system may become a tropical system and could bring heavy rain, wind, rip currents, and some coastal flooding to our community.

The Flash Flood Watch is in effect at midnight on Friday, July 10th through 4:00pm, on July 10th.  There is the potential for one to three inches of rain, with higher amounts possible, during this storm.  Heavy rain may occur in a brief period of time which can cause street flooding until the rain water drains from the streets.  Never drive on a flooded street or through a flooded intersection as this puts you and your vehicle at risk, and causes an unnecessary wake that can damage property.

If you live in a section of Stone Harbor where street flooding is common during heavy rainfall events, you are advised to consider moving your vehicle to a different part of the community.

The Stone Harbor Office of Emergency Management is in continual contact with the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management and New Jersey State Police regarding this weather event.  Continue to monitor our media channels and traditional media outlets for updates when necessary
