2020 Nor'easter: Storm surge leads to coastal flooding in Monmouth County
The nor’easter brought snow across parts of Monmouth County, but it was the winds and storm surge which caused problems along the beaches, leading to coastal flooding.
But as quickly as the water came in, it's just as quick heading out. It will be the last high tide the areas will see flooding.

“I think the big thing was that the storm surge was a little bit lower than anticipated and it also hit at dead low tide, which really makes a big difference,” says Mayor Ed Donovan.
Winds also helped push the surge back to the ocean against the incoming tide.
