Brigantine Police Chief John E. Stone and Emergency Management Officials are urging the residents of Brigantine that have stayed to please leave now. There is a travel ban in effect. You are permitted to leave the island and seek shelter on the mainland with a family member or one of the mainland shelters. Please leave now!! 

“We urge the public to use the emergency 911 system for emergencies only, so that priority situations are handled in the appropriate manner and speed.”    “During this storm, the Brigantine Police Department urges citizens to take great care, and to travel on the roadways if you are leaving the island.”

Seniors or Medical Personal that need transportation please call 609-266-7414.     

Brigantine is now feeling the early effects of Hurricane Sandy, and the storm is expected to ramp up throughout Monday and into Tuesday.

Coastal flood and high-wind warnings are in effect. We could see winds  at 85 mph.

We are seeing water / flooding in places that we have never seen before. Please don’t take any chances. This could be one of the largest storms in US History.

“Given our location as an island left vulnerable to the Atlantic Ocean, Brigantine Beach NJ is susceptible to the powerful and destructive nature of hurricanes, which is why it is important for every Brigantine resident to leave the island.” We can’t stress it anymore, please don’t take any chances…

Just don’t think of yourself. Think of the Police and Fire Emergency Personal that have been working day and night to protect and help the residents. Conditions are deteriorating as the day goes on . The window is closing as time goes on.
