East Coast Flooding from Ida

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Remnants of Tropical Storm Ida pounded the East Coast on Friday, flooding coastal areas in New Jersey after slamming the Carolinas and Virginia.

Strong wind and waves were causing severe beach erosion along the New Jersey shore, but the rain was not as heavy as predicted which could help ease the flooding.

Many streets were under water in Cape May County, which was under a state of emergency. Although officials suggested voluntary evacuations of low-lying areas late Thursday, there was no immediate word of any mandatory evacuations.
