More Flooding Along NJ, Delaware Coasts, Bays

Winds and an off-shore storm are churning up the water and leading to tidal flooding

Coastal flooding swept into some low-lying streets New Jersey streets Monday, one day after similar flooding along back bays.

In Ventnor, Edgewater Avenue was closed due to high water on Sunday. In Atlantic City, water was seen creeping into intersections both Sunday and Monday, though roads were not closed.

The cause of the flooding is a coastal storm that is churning off shore, causing high waves and pushing water ashore during high tides.

NBC10 has declared a First Alert for the Jersey Shore, back bays and Delaware Beaches on Monday that will last through 4 p.m.

The windy off-shore storm has kicked up the surf.
