NEW FLOOD WEB CAM:
Sea Isle City's new Flood Web Cam is the first camera placed on a barrier island by the New Jersey Coastal Coalition. The webcam will allow residents and visitors to keep an eye on rising water when flooding events occur. The Coastal Coalition (a non-profit organation comprised of seashore communities in New Jersey) plans to install Flood Web Cams in towns up and down the coastline.
