Story
Saturday, October, 29 2011 Nature: Nor’easter Storm Evaluations – District Survey Address: Oak Orchard - Long Neck On Saturday, October 29th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company continues to monitor and evaluate the fire district concerns by keeping a close eye on the various tidal conditions. Illustrated herewith are various photographs of the waterfront communities of Oak Orchard, Bay City, Malone Bayside, Long Neck, Massey's Landing, and nearby areas Additional information may be obtained by viewing the following webpages: (1) WGMD Radio 92.7 – www.wgmd.com http://www.wgmd.com/?p=38743 Roads flooding due to rain, tides from Nor’easter The heavy rains, astronomically high tides and high winds coming off the water during today’s Nor’easter are causing some roads in Sussex County to flood, resulting in closures. Prime Hook and Fowler Beach Roads have already been closed due to flooding. Prime Hook Road will remain closed for the rest of the weekend due to damaged pavement. The Sussex County Emergency Operations Center has received reports of standing water on both Oak Orchard Road and in the right lane of Route 1 northbound, just north of the Indian River Inlet. The Indian River Inlet Bridge will be closing at 9 o’clock tonight, ahead of the next high tide at the inlet, due to continued shoreline erosion just north of the bridge. Astronomically high tides are running around two feet above normal, and combined with 50-mile-an-hour wind gusts, could cause flooding during the times of high tide. Note: The Coastal Flood Warning has expired. A Wind Advisory remains in effect until midnight.
