Sandy-battered sections of the township were spared from much damage or flooding during the nor'easter, Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said.
"We are extremely thankful we did very well during the nor'easter," Amato said. "I received reports from our Office of Emergency Management that we had about six to eight inches of water in the street down by Balsam Drive, Main Street and some sections off Bayview Avenue in Holly Park."
Although Pelican Island and South Seaside Park took on some water in the roadways, the flooding was nothing severe, the mayor said.
The Parks and Recreation Department reported that some of the dunes in South Seaside Park were actually built up during the storm, he said.
"We gained a foot of sand in some spots near the new fencing, and more behind it," Amato said.
Sections of Good Luck Drive in the Good Luck Point section of the township had some water, but most of the streets were clear this afternoon. The water in the tidal marshlands off Bayview Avenue was close to the roadway, but the street was also clear.
Amato, Police Chief Karin T. DiMichele and emergency management officials held off yesterday and did not issue any evacuation orders, either mandatory or voluntary.
Waterfront sections on the barrier island and Glen Cove, Good Luck Point and the Toms River Shores section of the township are still reeling from the effects of Superstorm Sandy.
