Storm Causes Minor Coastal Flooding in Ocean City

Minor coastal flooding made travel in Ocean City difficult Thursday morning.

Some coastal flooding is making travel on the island difficult Thursday morning following a nor'easter that hit the region Wednesday night.

Minor coastal flooding on the island following the morning's high tides is making travel difficult, but not impossible for city residents attempting to get to work or otherwise travel around the city.

Currently, there are over 1,000 Atlantic City Electric customers in Cape May County without power, but the company's outage map isn't reflecting any in Ocean City as of 11 a.m.

Roadways were free of ice because temperatures remained above freezing. According to city officials, flooding was no worse than is typically the case during storms, and the city went through its normal preparations.

Coastal flooding is expected during high tides, with the next high tide expected at 7:29 p.m. Thursday night. The council meeting in which Mayor Jay Gillian is set to introduce the budget for the year begins at 7 p.m.

Ocean City remains under a Coastal Flood Advisory through midnight. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through Friday morning.

The city was spared the onslaught of snow that hit much of the rest of the state Wednesday night.
