At the Shore

A powerful coastal storm continues to surge water toward the Jersey Shore. The peak tide crest occurred early Friday morning, causing minor to moderate tidal flooding. Our next high tide around midday Friday could still be elevated (especially along bays and tributaries), but the overall flood risk should be minimal going forward.
