TUCKERTON - Residents at the Jersey Shore dealt with more coastal flooding Tuesday after a winter storm brought more snow to New Jersey.

Several towns, including Belmar, Manasquan, Middletown and Tuckerton, saw floodwaters so high that residents were trapped in their homes for the morning. Some of the floods measured 2 or 3 feet deep.

The floods were caused by a combination of a new moon, a low pressure system and heavy winds. Most of the homes in the lagoon communities were already raised post-Superstorm Sandy. Still, many residents tell News 12 New Jersey that they are concerned about damage to their vehicles.

The waters receded by the afternoon. However, residents say they are also concerned about coastal flooding during Tuesday night’s high tide.

The National Weather Service issued a coastal flood warning through Wednesday morning.
