Thanks should be given to the volunteers of Lakewood First Aid and to Lakewood EMS for helping evacuate and treat patients at the Peter Ward Tower on Woehr Ave and Atlantic Coast Rehab on RT9. They braved the storm answering calls in the worst of it and then helped clean up the aftermath at these locations. Thanks should also be given the American Red Cross volunteers who came to help take care of the displaced residents of the Peter Ward Tower and to the other first aid squads from towns such as Point Pleasant and Bayville who assisted in evacuating Atlantic Coast Rehab.
plenty of Rt 9 South did have the blackout, from martin luther area down to at least High street area.
miller/central wasnt too bad, very short blackout and heavy rain, no real damage. B”H
