MANASQUAN - Residents still recovering from Superstorm Sandy are keeping a close eye on the coastal storm expected to move across the Garden State over the next few days.

Manasquan is one of the few shore towns that does not have protective dunes separating the ocean from nearby homes. Coastal erosion and flooding are on the minds of both residents and local officials.

During midday high tide on Thursday, the water was coming up dangerously close to the town's promenade.

The National Weather Service has issued a coastal flood advisory for sections of Ocean, Middlesex and Monmouth counties until 5 p.m. on Friday.
