The man's body was found along the 200 block of W. 18th Street in North Wildwood, police said.
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.
