Here are some additional facts about the new flood maps in Manahawkin - Beach Haven West and Village Harbor.
1.  The odd numbered properties on Mill Creek Road from 1707 to 2147  are all located in the VE 10 flood zone.  These are the homes along the very eastern portion of Mill Creek Road along the bayfront and along the Mill Creek beginning with those homes that are opposite Diane.  They are the only properties I could determine to be in the VE zone.
2.  Almost all of the Village Harbor Coves is now in the AE 8 zone.  There are some properties at the end of Newel and Jeremy that are in the Shaded X zone, which is a very, very low risk zone.
3.  Beach Haven West is mostly AE 8 (the southerly most areas and AE 7 (the northerly most areas. 
4.  If you have a home in the Manahawkin waterfront area and you do NOT have an elevation certificate, they should seriously consider getting one!
