Barrington escapes brunt of storm; strong winds, 30 hours of rain still in forecast

Hurricane Sandy’s wind and rains caused significant damage at the Jersey Shore and up through New York City and  led to hundreds of thousands being without power — but Barrington appears to have gotten away largely unscathed.

However, with the ground already saturated and forecasting rain and/or showers for the next 30 hours, risks do remain. A coastal flooding warning is in place until 7 p.m. today and a high wind warning is in place until 3 p.m. today.

Due to the storm, Avon and Woodland schools remain closed today. The days off Monday and today will be made up April 4 and 5, according to initial reports on the district web site. In addition, Avon School’s Halloween event at the Cherry Hill International Sports Center was rescheduled from Sunday evening to Friday evening.

The borough also pushed trick-or-treating back from Wednesday to Saturday.
