LATEST ATLANTIC COUNTY UPDATE FOLLOWING HURRICANE SANDY

Access to the barrier island communities of Brigantine, Atlantic City, Ventnor, Margate and Longport  remains restricted at this time as per a directive by Governor Chris Christie.

Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson is requesting that the governor rescind the restriction for Brigantine, Margate and Longport after visiting those towns earlier today and conferring with their officials.

Because Ventnor sustained flooding to its sewer system, residents cannot return until the system is operating at full capacity. And in Atlantic City many areas of town remain without power and traffic signalization making it unsafe to return at this time.
