Police discovered the body of George W. Huber, 66, along the 200 block of W. 18th Street Thursday night.
Huber was floating in thigh-high water, authorities said.
An autopsy is expected to be performed on Monday, but police say they believe his death was accidental.
A strong, slow-moving November Nor'easter sent water flooding through the streets of shore communities all along the Jersey coast. The floodwaters caused Cape May county authorities to issue an evacuation advisory.
