ORTLEY BEACH - Flooding from Tropical Storm Andrea had a severe effect on Ortley Beach, where residents are still cleaning up after Sandy.

On Albacore Drive, homeowners built dams to keep the rainwater from flooding their homes. Residents on the street say mud backed up sewers on the street and on neighboring roads, leaving a muddy mess and puddles.

Residents say the dams managed to protect their homes, but they're hoping the town cleans out the drainage systems to prevent future flooding.
