New Jersey Volunteer Organizations Active in Disaster Update: HEART 9/11 participated in Hurricane Joaquin conference calls with Mid-Atlantic VOADS as the storm was tracked. We were in contact with community leaders in Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn and made preliminary plans for a hurricane response if needed. NJ Officials reported today there are no new issues that have come up in the past 24 hours. Local flooding and heavy winds are expected today. Power outages may also occur. High tides in the ocean and rivers/bays/inlets are also expected. HEART 9/11 was ready to respond if needed using Hurricane Joaquin as a training mission.
