A Message From Sea Isle City's
Office of Emergency Management

A powerful Coastal Storm is forecast t
o rapidly develop offshore starting tonight through Saturday. 
Rain will move into our area tonight and continue through Friday night. Strong winds will increase through the day on Friday and continue through Saturday night with gusts up to 65 mph. Please secure any outdoor furniture, trash cans, or other items which may be picked up by the winds.

Minor tidal flooding is expected to start with Friday morning's 8.30 a.m. high tide. Minor to moderate tidal flooding is expected with the following high tides through Saturday night. Depending on the tract of the storm, major tidal flooding is a possibility due to the projected strong winds and how severe the storm-driven ocean surge is at the times of high tide.

We ask that you move your vehicles from low-lying areas and refrain from driving through flood waters, because your wake will push water into businesses and residential properties causing damage.

Should you have an emergency, please call 911. Should you need police assistance, call 609-263-4311 ext. 0.
Please Use Alternate Route

In preparation of this weekend's coastal storm, the County has announced that the Townsends Inlet Bridge (connecting Sea Isle City and Avalon) will be closing at 5:00 p.m. today until sometime on Sunday, March 4, when weather conditions become more favorable for traffic to cross the bridge. Please plan an alternate route. Thank you for your patience! 


As you may have heard, I've been working with the Sea Isle City Police Department to initiate a Bicycle Safety Program that will make our roadways as safe as possible. With that in mind, this year we will be distributing bicycle safety brochures that outline important facts every bicyclist needs to know - and yet many are not aware of. For example, did you know that bicycles are considered "vehicles" and they are required to follow the rules of the road just like a car, such as stopping at stop signs, yielding to pedestrians and having a white headlight while riding at night? Because these and other important bicycle rules sometimes go unheeded, our goal is to educate our local bicyclists so we can all reach our destinations safely. So, before you dust off your bike this spring, please pick-up a bicycle safety brochure at the Welcome Center and elsewhere around town - and be sure to keep "bike safety" in mind whenever you are on two wheels!


During the February 27, 2018 City Council meeting, Business Administrator George Savastano announced that the Sea Isle Boulevard Elevation Project is on schedule and will be completed prior to the summer of 2019. Mr. Savastano also reported that work is progressing on the Townsends Inlet Bridge (connecting Sea Isle City and Avalon); however the T.I. Bridge is expected to be closed to all traffic for several weeks in April. The City will confirm the exact dates that the bridge will be closed in future communications.  CLICK HERE to read more.
