Strathmere residents are now being permitted to return to their homes by entering first entering Ocean City.

Ocean City started allowing homeowners back onto the island at noon Wednesday and police later started letting Strathmere homeowners travel through the island and go south over the Corson's Inlet Bridge to the beachfront portion of Upper Township.

Access to Sea Isle along Ocean Drive from Strathmere is still blocked.

Residents should bring proof of residence or ownership and enter Ocean City on the Route 52 or 34th Street bridges and drive south to Bay Avenue.
