Eatontown Office of Emergency Management

Eatontown Office of Emergency Management This page will be used to disseminate emergent and non-emergent information to the residents and eme Currently Barry Roth is the CERT Coordinator for Eatontown.
(6)

Established in 1982 the Eatontown Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is responsible for Federal and State Law, for the coordination of all Emergency Services in the Borough of Eatontown. We know that Emergencies can strike anytime, anywhere and in many forms, such as a hurricane, snow storm, earthquake, flood, fire, and hazardous material; an act of nature or an act of terrorism. The Office of E

mergency Management has the resources and responsibilities for dealing with all aspects of emergencies, plus oversees the four basic phases of Emergency Management which are mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. Emergency management involves plans, structures and arrangements established to engage the normal endeavors of government, voluntary and private agencies in a comprehensive and coordinated way to respond to the whole spectrum of emergency needs.The Mayor and Council work very closely with OEM to provide the support that is needed to be effective in all phases. The Borough of Eatontown Office of Emergency Management is responsible for implementing, reviewing, and updating the Emergency-Operating Plan. The Emergency Operating Plan (EOP) contains annexes for each borough department delineating what their responsibilities are in the event of an emergency or disaster. Where Borough departments cannot provide specific support services, outside agencies, such as the American Red Cross and Salvation Army, are contracted through verbal and written agreements to provide the service needed. The Emergency Operating Plan is reviewed and approved every 3 years by the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management. Annexes must be tested through functional, tabletop, and full-scale exercises. The Borough's Emergency Operating Center (EOC) is located adjacent to the police communications center in the municipal building. In times of crisis, all members of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) respond to Borough Hall and meet to address the emergency. The Office of Emergency Management also coordinates a Citizen EmergencyResponseTeam (CERT). The CERT program is a voluntary and is always seeking volunteers. Training is provided

09/22/2023

This is our first full briefing package regarding expected impacts for our weekend coastal storm. We will quickly address that the National Hurricane Center has designated this coastal low as Potential Tropical Cyclone 16. At this time, we do not expect this system to remain "tropical" by the time it arrives in our area Friday night into Saturday. Regardless of whether it maintains its "tropical" labeling, our impacts will remain similar.

Here's what will matter to you this weekend:

1 - A coastal storm will impact our region this weekend, starting Friday Night and lasting through Sunday. The most significant impacts will be to areas along the immediate coast on Saturday, in the form of coastal flooding and strong winds, along with periods of heavy rain.

2 - MAJOR coastal flooding is possible along coastal areas of Kent and Sussex Counties in Delaware. Moderate coastal flooding is possible along southern coastal areas of New Jersey; some major coastal flooding cannot be ruled out in spots for Cape May and Atlantic counties in New Jersey. The greatest concern for coastal flooding will likely occur during the Saturday afternoon high tide, around 2-3pm, but could linger into following high tide cycles on Sunday.

3 - Strong onshore winds are forecast on Saturday. Gusts 50-60 mph are possible across the immediate coastal areas and over the ocean waters; peaking up to 30-40 mph inland. Combined with coastal flooding, this could result in at least minor beach erosion, along with dangerous rip currents. A High Wind Warning has been issued for the coast with Wind Advisories up further inland for all coastal counties of DE and NJ. For our marine zones, dangerous winds and seas have warranted a Storm Warning and Gale Warnings for all waters.

4 - Periods of heavy rain will fall from Friday night into Sunday, with the heaviest during the day on Saturday. Locally over 2 to 3 inches of rain may fall across portions of the region with coastal areas seeing 3-4 inches. Amounts may change depending on the exact track of the storm system. Locally heavier amounts will be possible, resulting in a risk for localized flash flooding.

Sincerely,
NWS Philadelphia/Mount Holly

09/21/2023

Here are the key messages for our region regarding the potential impacts of a coastal storm over the weekend.



1 - We are still expecting a coastal storm to impact our region this weekend, starting Friday Night and lasting into Sunday. The most significant impacts will be to areas along the immediate coast on Saturday, in the form of coastal flooding and strong winds, along with periods of heavy rain.



2 - While there is still uncertainty regarding exact coastal water levels on Saturday, at this point it appears that most of the New Jersey and Delaware coast will experience at least minor coastal flooding, and some areas, particularly coastal southern New Jersey and southern Delaware, may experience moderate coastal flooding. The greatest concern for coastal flooding will likely occur during the Saturday afternoon high tide, around 2-3pm, but could linger into following high tide cycles on Sunday.



3 - Strong onshore winds are forecast on Saturday. Gusts up to 50 mph are possible across the immediate coastal areas and over the ocean waters; peaking up to 40 mph inland. Combined with coastal flooding, this could result in at least minor beach erosion, along with dangerous rip currents. A Gale Watch is in effect for the waters a Wind Advisory may be necessary for land areas near the coast.



4 - Periods of rain will fall from Friday night into Sunday, possibly heaviest on Saturday. Locally over 2 to 3 inches of rain may fall across portions of the region. That still depends on the track of the storm system, and that track remains uncertain. At this time those heavier rain amounts are forecast for the coastal areas, with less than 2 inches forecast northwest of I-95. Aside from the coastal flooding, some occasional urban and small-stream flooding of low-lying areas could occur during periods of heavier rain.



5 - There is potential that the system acquires some tropical characteristics and become a named storm, but this remains highly uncertain.

Good Morning

There is a risk for severe thunderstorms this afternoon into this evening producing damaging winds, with a couple tornadoes possible, and heavy downpours leading to some localized urban and small stream flooding.



Hazardous Weather: The primary severe weather hazard will be damaging winds, though a couple tornadoes are possible. There is some concern for hail, but it is much more uncertain if this will develop and it is not expected to be the primary threat. In addition, instances of heavy rainfall may lead to some flooding issues, mainly in the urban corridor.



Locations affected: The entire region is at risk for severe thunderstorms and localized flooding. The highest risk for damaging winds and any tornadoes is generally along and west of a Trenton to Philadelphia to Georgetown line. The highest risk for flooding is along the urban corridor. Refer to the attached graphics.



Timing: This afternoon through this evening. The greatest risk is between 4 PM to 10 PM.



Impacts: Severe thunderstorms could produce damaging wind gusts bringing down trees and power lines resulting in power outages. Excessive rainfall rates could result in localized flash flooding, mainly limited to urban and poor drainage areas.



Confidence on occurrence: The risk for damaging winds occurring within our region is between 30 and 45%. The risk for flash flooding occurring within our region is 15 to 30%. The probability of a tornado occurring within our region is 2 to 5%. The probability of large hail occurring within our region is 5 to 10%.


Sincerely,

NWS Philadelphia/Mount Holly

Good Morning Partners,



We continue to monitor multiple weather hazards that are anticipated to impact the area through the end of the week:



1) Scattered thunderstorms are forecast to develop across the region Thursday afternoon or evening. The Storm Prediction Center has maintained the previous outlook for Thursday, with most of our area in a SLIGHT risk for severe thunderstorms. There is also a MARGINAL risk of excessive rainfall which may lead to flash flooding. While the exact timing and coverage of these threats remains a bit unclear at this time, any thunderstorms will be capable of producing locally damaging winds, hail, and heavy rainfall.



Severe Weather and Excessive Rainfall Outlook for THURSDAY



2) Building heat is expected through Friday with heat indices forecast to reach the 100Β° to 105Β°+ range beginning Thursday. Friday is still forecast to be the hottest day of the heat wave, although hot and humid conditions will persist through Saturday. A cold front will bring cooler weather by Sunday. Heat Advisories and an Excessive Heat Watch have been issued for portions of the area. Additional Heat Advisories will likely be needed for Delmarva and far southern New Jersey in future forecast updates.

Sincerely,

NWS Mount Holly

07/20/2023

Widespread thunderstorms are in the forecast for late tonight, Thursday, July 20th and during the day Friday, July 21st, raising the potential for impacts from severe weather and flooding.



Hazardous Weather: Heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding; severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and hail.



Locations affected: Eastern PA, NJ, DE, and northeastern MD.



Timing: A squall line of thunderstorms looks likely to affect portions of the region starting after midnight tonight into early Friday morning. After those storms weaken and move out of the area, additional thunderstorms may then develop across the entire region later in the day Friday.



Impacts: Excessive rainfall rates could result in flash flooding, especially in urban and poor drainage areas. Some storms could produce severe wind gusts 60 to 70 mph, resulting in damage to trees and power lines. Dime to quarter-sized hail is possible with the stronger cells



Confidence on occurrence: High confidence there will be thunderstorms capable of producing localized flooding across most of our region, but moderate confidence in severe weather, and low confidence on storm coverage & specific timing in any one location.



See the attached graphic for the current risk for excessive rainfall and severe weather. The risk of severe weather is 'marginal' (1 out of 5), while the risk of flooding is 'slight' (2 out of 5).

Best regards,



NWS Mount Holly

Good morning Partners,

We wanted to give a quick update on the system that is continuing to impact the area. The main change is that coastal flooding impacts are looking to be more significant with additional rain amounts trending higher as the system now looks to linger through Tuesday. Key changes are as follows:

1) The Coastal Flood Advisory for today has been upgraded to a Coastal Flood Warning along the NJ coast from Ocean County southward and also for Kent County Delaware.

2) Additional rain amounts for today through Tuesday night are now forecast to be 1-2 inches near the I-95 corridor with 2-3 inches generally expected along the coast. It's even possible some places in far southern NJ and southern DE could see another 4 inches of rain over this period. This may result in some nuisance, and poor drainage type flooding and may also
exacerbate coastal flooding impacts.

3) For Marine interests, the Gale Warning has been upgraded to a Storm Warning for our southern 3 coastal zones off the coast of southern NJ south through the waters off southern Delaware.

Please contact our office if you have any questions. The next briefing will be issued by 6 PM Sunday.

Sincerely,

NWS Philadelphia/Mount Holly

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Here are the key messages for our region in regards to potential impacts with the remnants of what is currently Tropical Storm Ian this weekend.

Heavy Rain: There is potential for heavy rain in northern Delmarva and southern New Jersey, especially along coastal areas. Periods of rain will develop Friday evening and will continue through Tuesday (not all due to the impacts of Ian). The main period of concern with the heavy rain threat is Friday night through Saturday. Rain amounts of 2 to 5 inches are possible for coastal areas of Delaware and New Jersey. For other areas along and southeast of the Interstate 95 corridor, 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible. North and west of the Interstate 95 corridor, rain amounts are expected to be generally up to one inch.

Tidal/Coastal Flooding: There is an increasing risk for minor tidal flooding beginning on Friday afternoon for the Delaware Bay and Atlantic Ocean coasts of Delaware and on Saturday for the Atlantic Coast of New Jersey. Peak water levels are currently expected to occur on Sunday producing minor coastal flooding. Minor approaching moderate flooding is possible on Sunday particularly along the Delaware coasts. The coastal flooding threat will occur primarily with the afternoon/evening high tide cycles but spotty minor conditions will be possible with the overnight high tides. Coastal flooding threat decreases but remains possible on Monday.

Winds: East winds will increase to 15 to 25 mph with 30 to 40 mph gusts, mainly along the New Jersey and Delaware coasts, on Sunday. These winds are short of Wind Advisory criteria. Lower winds are expected for areas north of Interstate 78.

Marine hazards: Northeasterly gale force winds are expected for the lower Delaware Bay and the Delaware and southern New Jersey coastal waters Friday night into Saturday morning. Another period of northeasterly gales is likely Sunday into Sunday night.

Attached is the forecast rain amounts through Sunday night as well as the current forecast tidal flooding for the Sunday afternoon high tide.

Good Morning Everyone,

Here are the key messages for our region in regards to potential impacts with the remnants of what is currently Tropical Storm Ian this weekend.

Heavy Rain: There is potential for heavy rain in northern Delmarva and southern New Jersey. Periods of rain will develop Friday evening and will continue through Tuesday (not all due to the impacts of Ian). The main period of concern with the heavy rain threat is Friday night through Saturday. Rain amounts of 1 to as much as 4 inches are possible along and south of the Interstate 95 corridor Friday night through Tuesday, with 1 to 2 inches of that falling Friday night through Saturday. North and west of the Interstate 95 corridor, rain amounts are expected to be generally up to one inch.

Tidal/Coastal Flooding: There is an increasing risk for minor tidal flooding along the Atlantic coast and Delaware Bay starting on Saturday, but the peak will occur Sunday through Monday. The details on this remain uncertain.

Winds: East winds will increase to 20 to 25 mph with 30 to 40 mph gusts, mainly along the New Jersey and Delaware coasts, on Sunday. These winds are short of Wind Advisory criteria.

Marine hazards: Gale force northeast wind gusts will develop from Sunday through Monday.
