FEMA agrees to change some “V” zones in Toms River PDF Print E-mail

As a result of Toms River Township’s continuing efforts to review and monitor the recent and ongoing changes to the FEMA Flood Maps, Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher is pleased to announce that the Township Engineer has received a response to his latest letter to FEMA from December 17, 2013. Robert Chankalian’s letter, among other things, requested that FEMA revisit some areas along the bay front where the “V” zone, or wave velocity line, did not follow the bulkhead. This, in Chankalian’s opinion, erroneously resulted in some homes being placed in the V zone. Mayor Kelaher stated that this would result in significantly higher insurance premiums for those residents.

Sandy Photos Before & After: One Year Later PDF Print E-mail

New Superstorm Sandy photos are available for viewing on the Toms River Township website. The “Before & After” photos show the barrier island in a state of destruction, immediately after the storm. The bottom half of the photos depict the same area one year later.

“As you look at the comparison photos on our website, you’ll be reminded of the extreme devastation that existed, and the reasons why our area was declared a State of Emergency disaster zone for so many weeks.” Mayor Tom Kelaher said. “These photos also exhibit just how far we’ve come in the past year.”

As always, if residents need help with recovery, they can contact the appropriate person at town hall to help them navigate through the rebuilding and/or decision-making process. To view photos, go to www.TomsRiverTownship.com and click on the “photo gallery” under the main menu.

During Hurricane Sandy, homes were lifted off their foundation and then they drifted onto the middle of Route 35 in the Ortley Beach section of Toms River. One year later, the roads are passable and many homes are being rebuilt.
