Police Chief & OEM Coordinator Rob Lawson: We’re Keeping A Close Eye On The Storm

Officials in Lakewood are keeping a close eye on the potentially dangerous and powerful storm which threatens the region, Police Chief and Lakewood OEM Coordinator Rob Lawson tells TLS.

“We’re keeping a close eye on it”, Police Chief Rob Lawson says of Hurricane Sandy. “We’re making sure our emergency vehicles – the 4×4 and Humvees – are ready”, the Chief said. 

The Humvees recently obtained free by the LPD could enter deep waters and assist in evacuation if necessary.

The Chief says he also asked that Lake Carasaljo be lowered by a couple of inches in case of flooding.

According to the National Weather Service, there’s an increasing chance that New Jersey could get hit by the storm and be in for strong winds and heavy rains resulting in flooding and large power outages. The storm could begin as early as Sunday, forecasters say.

“We’ll take further precautions if necessary”, Lawson says. TLS.

  1. perhaps the shaking weather will shake us up to finally return to Hashem with teshuva towards mashaich & geula.

    i.e. if tragedies & other catastrophic tzaros won’t wake us up & change our ways to facing these bad times R”L & asking why are there so much tzaros R”L if this doesn’t work then Hashem needs to return us to Teshuva & torah through other ways.

    sometimes its done through shaking tsunami’s & hurricanes etc….

    hopefully we can start to accept hashem wake-up calls already
