N.J. Coastal Coalition Installs Web Camera in Sea Isle

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. -

The New Jersey Coastal Coalition is hoping that 24/7 video of flood-prone areas will help residents stay safe.

Sea Isle City is planning a 24-hour online livestream of flooding along one of its most frequently inundated streets.

Sea Isle City plans to mount a web camera on its public works building by the middle of this month.

The $5,000 camera is being paid for through a grant from OceanFirst Bank to the New Jersey Coastal Coalition.

The goal of the camera is to help residents avoid parking in areas that may see floods.

City spokeswoman Katherine Custer says visuals will be a tremendous tool to help accentuate flood alerts.

The coalition says it hopes to install more cameras throughout Atlantic and Cape May counties.
