Intermediate North shelter at capacity. Supplies low
Intermediate North shelter is at full capacity. All residents please use High School East. Supplies are extremely limited. Residents are asked to bring a pillow, blanket and snacks. In the afternoon, Red Cross officials described a shortage of blankets and cots for evacuees. Lunch today was provided by the Township of Toms River and the Toms River Regional Schools according to Toms River Police Chief Michael Mastronardy.
Evacuation is Mandatory for the barrier islands only. Mainland and low-lying, flood-prone areas are on a voluntary evacuation. Mastronardy suggests residents in potential at-risk neighborhoods use their own judgement as to when to evacuate and to use caution.
