Remnants of Hurricane Ian being felt at the Jersey Shore

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (WPVI) — It’s going to be rainy and windy on the Jersey shore for the next few days as the remains of Ian make themselves felt.

In North Wildwood, just before nightfall, the wind lashed everything from the sand to the light poles.

Mayor Patrick Rosenello says they won’t take the next few days lightly.

“OEM is ready for the fall. Sometimes these storms take a little turn, they get a little bit closer and a little bit more intense,” Rosenello said.

He just hopes everyone is safe and their beach doesn’t get washed away.

“If you have a storm that causes a lot of beach damage, even in a small town like North Wildwood, it can get into the millions very, very quickly,” Rosenello said.

The other concern is of course coastal flooding at the bays.

In flood areas like Annapolis Avenue in Atlantic City, some neighbors have already put sandbags in front of their doors.

Vince Jones, the director of Atlantic County Emergency Management, says the sustained winds we’re going to get are ripening the conditions.

So any property, especially cars, that can be raised to a higher level should be.

“Unfortunately, we have problems until the storm really clears and the winds turn west to push the water out,” Jones said.
