From Hudson to Monmouth counties, flood waters on Friday damaged homes in Ocean Township.
Heavy rain combined with continued higher than normal tides created a flooding situation in low lying areas.
In Manasquan, the projected high tide at 8 a.m. will crest just below moderate flood stage. But with heavy overnight rains, storm drains won't be able to handle the runoff once the tide comes in.
Residents living in areas where they see water rising out of storm drains should be extra alert Friday during the morning and evening high tides.

Flooding in Deal

Heavy overnight and morning rains are still causing road closures in Monmouth County, including Route 71 in Deal.  
Flooding has closed both northbound and southbound lanes of the road near Brighton Avenue.  
This area is known for frequent flooding during heavy rain events.
