Flooding follows nor'easter in Manasquan

Posted: Updated:
MANASQUAN -

Heavy rain from Friday's nor'easter and creeping high tides resulted in coastal flooding on the Jersey Shore. 

The high tides brought an extra 2 feet of water in Manasquan Saturday morning, causing the Manasquan Inlet and Watson Creek to burst their banks and flood neighborhood streets.

Officials urged residents to be careful while driving.

According to the mayor, the heavy winds Saturday helped with the flooding, as it helped push it away from the streets.

Flood watches were in effect through Sunday up and down the Jersey Shore.
