ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – The Borough advises residents there is a storm warning in effect.  High winds and a storms surge of 3-4 feet is expected, on top of the high tides Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. There are no evacuation orders for Atlantic Highlands, although neighboring Middletown has ordered and evacuation on the “wetside”, North of Route 36.  

The town lifted a boil water advisory that was issued in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Bulk pick-up in Zone 2 will be this Saturday.  Some items in Zone 1 will also be picked up, if possible.

In a phone message to residents, Police Chief Jerry Vasto expressed “frustration” with JCP&L.  He said, “There is serious damage to the Atlantic Higlands substation. To what extent we don’t know.”  The borough hopes to get a time frame for restoration from JCP&L.  Chief Vasto also said the borough was making its frustration with JCP&L known to the Governor’s Office.
