Although many roadways in waterfront areas flooded during the high tide leftover from the Nor'easter, there were few significant problems, Mayor Carmen F. Amato Jr. said today.
"We had one reported power outage," Amato said, during a break in a tour with emergency management officials. "The power was out in the area of the Quik Check, but that has been restored."
The beach in South Seaside Park during the storm flooded up to the dunes. Bayview Avenue in South Seaside Park between 20th and 24th Avenue was also under water, the mayor said.
"Half of Pelican Island has some flooding," Amato said. "In Bayville, Bayview Avenue was eight to ten inches across the roadway in different sections."
Western Boulevard at the border with Lacey Township also flooded, he said.
Township Emergency Management officials determined there was no need for evacuations, the mayor said.
"The high tide came in this morning, causing the flooding," Amato said. "Now the flooding is receding and heading east."
The National Weather Service is calling for strong northwest winds this afternoon and tonight, which traditionally push water out of the back bays.
