UPDATE: Toms River Homeowners Can Take Cars to Parts of Barrier Islands Saturday, Sunday

Residents north of Lavallette can bring one car per household between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. this weekend, but access will depend upon where the home is located.

Entry to parts of the township north of Lavallette will enter another phase this weekend when residents can visit sections of the storm-ravaged peninsula in their own cars between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m., according to the Toms River Township's Website.

This gives residents an opportunity for more extensive remediation and preparing their homes for winter.  Large moving vans will not be allowed entry.

On Saturday, Nov. 17, residents from the following sections will be able to visit:  Shore Way (Lavallette Border) North to Strickland Blvd.; Ocean Beach Units 1, 2, and 3; Ocean Beach Shores; Seacrest Beach; Sunset Manor Shores; Monterey Beach; and Ocean Beach Peninsula (Bayside).

On Sunday, Nov. 18, residents of the following sections will be able to visit:  Strickland Blvd North to 6th Avenue; Normandy (Brick border); Chadwick Beach; Normandy Shores; Chadwick Beach Island; Normandy Beach; and Silver Beach.

Residents that do not follow their designated day of entry will not be permitted access, the township said. 

Residents of those sections of the township should line up at the foot of the Route 37 bridge until 2 p.m.  Starting at 2 p.m. those days, the roadways will be used for heavy equipment, the township said.

Residents will need identification and proof of ownership for the home being entered -- a tax bill or utility bill -- and police will do additional checks at homes.  One car per household is permitted, but residents can come and go throughout the day.

Residents should work with homeowners' associations to have contractors on site to assist with winterization, but contractors will not be allowed to solicit jobs.  Insurance adjusters are also permitted to see customers those days.

No utilities are functioning on the island, so residents will be unable to run water or flush toilets, the township said.

The township warned that the roads are narrow in many areas of the barrier islands in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

The township said some of the homes that were dislodged from foundations and were in roadways and others were washed on other properties.  Some homes are not safe to enter and have been marked by the township.

Those homeowners should discuss their options with their insurance carriers about gaining access to their property, the township said.

Please make corrections to this map. Several houses on Diane Lane are off their foundations or completely gone. We've seen aerial views of our property indicating the situation. Who inspected this area?

Why is ORTLEY BEACH mentioned in your heading when not mentioned in the schedule in both the article and Toms River Website. Can you please verify this? Ortley Beach Homeowner

The mention of Ortley Beach is just one of the many errors the writers on the Toms River Patch make on a daily basis.

There needs to be more noise on the APK scam. We have photos of the car on private property AFTER the storm and they towed it anyway! It has created problems with our insurance claim. They SHOULD be punished.

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".
