After assessing the situation on Monday, The Department of Transportation has made the decision to not let residents return to their home on Tuesday to gather up belongings.

On Monday, residents were allowed to return to their Seaside Park home from 9a-3p to collect their personal items. They were supposed  to be allowed to go on Tuesday as well, but the decision was changed late Monday afternoon.

This decision has been made due to the barrier islands roads being deemed unsafe.

Seaside Park officials hope to let residents return by week's end
