The nor'easter that dumped more than two feet of snow in parts of northwest New Jersey also triggered coastal flooding in communities along the shore on Monday, Feb. 1. Videos posted to social media on Monday show flooded streets in Point Pleasant Beach and Sea Isle City.
A Coastal Flood Warning was in effect on Monday. A Coast Flood Advisory was in effect through Wednesday morning for parts of New Jersey and New York. The alerts have expired.
The National Weather Service said tidal areas in Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Burlington, Atlantic and Cape May counties were expected to experience up to half a foot "of inundation above ground level in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways."
Union Beach Police posted a video on Facebook showing a vehicle driving through a flooded street past a stranded car. Authorities said Keyport Police Chief Shannon Torres and Capt. Michael Ferm rescued a man showing signs of hypothermia from his car.
"At this level, flooding begins on the most vulnerable roads in coastal and bayside communities, and along inland tidal waterways," the NWS said in its advisory. "Some partial or full road closures are possible."
