Shelters and Power Outages

Dear Residents,

Monmouth County will be providing shelters at various locations. Residents seeking emergency shelter must report to the Tinton Falls Borough Hall located at 556 Tinton Avenue and bring all essential items. If you intend to relocate on your own, please do so as soon as possible. However, we strongly urge that all residents remain indoors. Additionally, please reduce wind-born hazards by bringing objects indoors such as furniture, planters, and decorations.

Due to high winds, the Tinton Falls Office of Emergency Management anticipates downed trees, limbs, and wires leading to power outages and safety hazards. If you encounter any wire, immediately contact the Tinton Falls Police Department at 732 542 4422. Never go near any downed wire, even if you believe it is no longer carrying electricity. Stay at least 30 feet away from downed wires and be careful to avoid anything touching those wires. If a wire falls on a vehicle, stay inside until help arrives.

The Tinton Falls Office of Emergency Management will continue to monitor the storm’s progress and updated information will be provided through the Tinton Falls Code Red system.

As Hurricane Sandy approaches, please finalize your preparations and stay safe.

- Mayor Michael Skudera
