Boulevard Under Water as Winter Nor’easter Hits LBI
Flooding, some of the worst this area has seen since Superstorm Sandy, and beach erosion were visible impacts of a nor’easter that made road travel difficult Monday night, Jan. 23 into Tuesday, Jan 24. Large potions of Long Beach Boulevard were impassable and closed by the Long Beach Township Police Department. Wind gusts yesterday recorded in Harvey Cedars reached 55 mph.
The tide is currently receding and winds are projected to switch offshore so tonight’s high tide isn’t expected to create the same conditions as this morning.
