Good morning HCTA members and friends,
Our HC High Point Volunteer Fire Department will host Governor Christie’s news conference this morning at 11am. I am not sure what channel this will be on, but the HCPD said the ‘local channel’. Also please read this attached article regarding the Island mayors letter to Christie. Gov. Chris Christie to tour Long Beach Island Wednesday after appeal by mayors to lift evacuation order – pressofAtlanticCity.com: Ocean County News
The Long Beach Island Joint Emergency Management advises the Rt72/Causeway bridge will be closed to all eastbound traffic today (Wednesday , Nov 7 ) at 1:00 pm until Friday, Nov 9 at 6:00 am, due to the incoming Nor’easter. High tide at the bridge will be approximately 4:00 pm so they are insisting that all traffic be off the Island by 1:00 pm. Should there be any variation in the weather, these closure times will be changed accordingly. Please do not call the Police Station or Emergency Management trailer for questions regarding this announcement.
