MANASQUAN - The Jersey Shore is bracing itself for the winter storm headed our way.

A coastal flood warning is in effect that could cause problems in areas prone to flooding, like the back bays in Manasquan.

High tides Thursday morning and evening are the times of greatest concern.

Manasquan is more vulnerable because its dune was never rebuilt after Superstorm Sandy.

Residents are taking this latest storm in stride. "I'm not worried about this storm," says Robert Doane, of Freehold. "My concern is living 12 miles inland. Will I have 4 inches or 10 inches of snow? We've had enough."

Flooding is expected in areas of poor drainage and roadways.

Strong winds with gusts up to 30 miles per hour and pounding surf could also cause beach erosion.
