New Jersey builds up shore dunes ahead of new storm

"I know it's awful to think we might take a few steps back," he said in a briefing on Long Beach Island, which was devastated by Sandy and still remains off-limits to residents and everyone else. "I can see us moving backwards, people who have gotten power back losing power again."

Katie Wilford had to leave her Brick Township home near Barnegat Bay as the nor'easter approached. She bundled her sons Nick, 14, and Matthew, 10, into the minivan in search of an open motel.

"It's a little overwhelming," she said. "I can't believe we're doing this again. We're going on Day 10 with no power. That's a long time. I just want the sun to come out and things to be normal again."

Brick was among several shore communities where municipal officials decided to evacuations were needed. Others included Middletown, Point Pleasant and Berkeley.

The township's office of emergency management issued the order for all residents between the Keansburg and Atlantic Highlands borders, from Route 36 to the Raritan Bay.

Residents will be required to leave by 3 p.m. Wednesday ahead of the anticipated high winds that could make debris left in the wake of Sandy become airborne.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
