7 Ocean Breaches in Mantoloking, Debris on Route 35

Determination on access to come soon

The ocean breached the dunes in seven places – from Lyman Avenue to Downer Avenue – during Wednesday's coastal storm, the Mantoloking Office of Emergency Management has confirmed.

"Ocean water pushed through and brought significant amounts of water and debris onto Route 35," the borough's OEM office reported in a post to its Facebook page.

After the ocean breached, the wind shifted to the southwest, causing "significant" bayside flooding, the office said.

Flooding reached the top step of the borough hall building on Downer Avenue and was measured at 2.9 feet above normal at Old Bridge Street.

"We need to see what happens during the next two tidal cycles to see about access [Friday]," the post said.

A determination on access for borough residents will most likely be made Friday morning.

"before I file a claim with my insurance company, I'm going to submit my bills for any damages to Bill Cooper to share in the expense of my "private property"." I already do, Davie Boy. All those who pay for insurance help foot the bill for all those who file claims. That's, ummm, kind of how it works. I thought adults knew this. How did it manage to slip past you?

FDR, we are all a little dumber for having read your moronic idea.

I can not believe they keep letting Bill Cooper post. Nobody on here has called anybody names like children do when they get upset. So far most of us are ignorant, idiots, morons, short sighted, dumb, morons and crazy. JBOT also called us stupid and said stupid people suck. It's amazing when you post your opinion and someone doesn't agree with it they spew nastyness. Evedently their mothers and fathers never told them it's not nice to call others names. That is a form of bulling and we are supposed to teach our children not to do it but grown adults do it and it seems to be ok? And shame on this page for letting them do it.

Kim, shame on your husband for letting you use the computer as much as he does. Instead of continuing to embarrass yourself, go fix him a sandwich and leave the discussion to those of us who can be rational instead of emotional. Obviously, Doug, this eliminates you from the conversation, too.

Wouldnt it be great if the "officials" took this opportunity to establish a viable plan for the environmental protection of the Metedeconk river? The brownish/Green sludge could well be replaced by clean water. Dredging of course would be required, perhaps clam/oyster farms used as filters and certainly a good hard look at new construction that bulldozes over the marshes that protect us all.
