Hurricane Sandy: Live from Mystic Island

Oct 28, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: NJ.com

Hello all, welcome from Mystic Island. For those who have never heard of Mystic Island - I'm guessing that's about 95 percent of New Jersey - it's a community at the southernmost edge of Ocean County, part of Little Egg Harbor Township and next to Tuckerton.

<quoted text>Tey are not letting anyone down twin lakes. I heard there were 5 houses burnt, I'm worried too but Icalled west tuckerton fire dept and they said vehicles are not ablr or allowed to travel into Mystic especially twin lakes blvd. sorry, I'm with ya though. This was 10 am tues morning
Thank you so much James....the news does not show ANYTHING on that area. We are just in the dark. Should we call Tuckerton Fire Dept? Were they helpful for information? My moms house is near the end of Twin Lakes Blvd. We REALLY appreciate the information you gave us, although we wish the news was better. Hope you and your family stay safe and we'd appreciate ANY new info that you come across.

Was Mystic evacuated prior to Hurricane Sandy's visit? Was Tuckerton flooded as well?

UPDATE - they are now allowing people down twin lakes to check their houses. Houses on E shrewsbury had about 10" inside of water per my neighbor who called me from the street. crawl spaces are still filled with water. boats, floating docks, debris all over the place. Still no power.
Consider all first floor items sitting on the floor trashed no matter where you have a house in the area. good luck to all.
ANDY, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the update. My mom lives on E Navasink. We haven't heard a WORD on Mystic Island on the news. Any new updates would sure be appreciated!

"Hey Pam! We are looking too. Let us know if you find anything."

Hey John and Shirl..... Will let you know anything I find out. You do the same. It doesn't sound good , I am worried about mom and dad going alone to check on Thursday. Are you going?
Do you guys know if the other houses that are being referred to as having water inside are raised?
