Asharoken State of Emergency
10:00 AM, Sunday, August 28, 2011
Hurricane Irene Advisory
Asharoken Mayor Pat Irving has declared a State of Emergency for the Village of Asharoken. Asharoken Avenue is closed.
Conditions at the sea wall have worsened to the point where vehicular travel in that area has become dangerous.
Furthermore, many areas of the dunes along Asharoken Avenue are likely to breach before high tide at 11:10 AM this morning.
The roadway will stay closed until it is safe to travel and any debris has been removed from the roadway. It is expected that the road will be closed for several hours, perhaps longer if the roadway is damaged.
Although most of Eaton’s Neck is without power, utilities are still operational throughout the Village of Asharoken.
