Monday's high tides will occur at 10:19 a.m. and 10:40 p.m. Evacuation for Tuesday "will be determined in the next day or so, depending on the storm's position," acccording to a message issued by Oceanport OEM Coordinator Mauro V. Baldanza.

Travel should be limited to emergency personnel only, the message urged.

"Once the storm has arrived, first responders will be pulled off the road to await the storms passing," according to Baldanza. "They will not be sent out for rescue operations during that time. Those individuals who have not evacuated must remain in place and await rescue at a later time."
