Update on Conditions in Cape May County as a Result of March Storm
Release Date: March 07, 2013

The National Weather Ser­vice has con­tin­ued a Coastal Flood Warn­ing for coastal com­mu­ni­ties in Cape May County through 9 a.m. Fri­day, March 8th.
 
Coastal communities in Cape May County expe­ri­enced mod­er­ate coastal flood­ing in flood prone areas dur­ing the High Tide this morning, Thurs­day, March 7th.  There remains a chance for minor to mod­er­ate coastal flood­ing at time of high tide this
after­noon and again on Fri­day morn­ing.  Also, the High Wind Warn­ing has been dropped by the National Weather Ser­vice.
 
Some communities reported pockets of power out­ages dur­ing the storm event.  Down poles and tree limbs knocked down dur­ing the strong gusty winds caused power outages and the closure of some roads in the county.
 
High tide will take place around 4:06 p.m., Thursday afternoon.  Please be care­ful dri­ving dur­ing that time as flood prone areas on barrier islands may be flooded.  High tide on Fri­day morn­ing will take place at 4:56 a.m. Do not drive on any flooded road or under down power lines.  If you see a wire down, please do not touch it and report it to your local police or emergency management office. 
 
If you experience a power out­age, please report it directly to Atlantic City Elec­tric; the power out­age report­ing phone num­ber is 1–800-833-7476.
