By noon on Monday, Sandy had cranked up her winds to 40 mph, rolling in swells from Sea Bright into the backwaters of the Shrewsbury River. The combination of high tide, high winds and waves unbroken by land, brought breakers to backyards.

With the storm's center still a ways away, Monday morning's high tide left a high water mark at Irene's highest levels. The heavy weather and water pounding docks are rough for sure, but forecasters anticipate that Monday night's high tide will be worse, as winds ramp up and Sandy pushes in a storm surge.

Stay tuned to Patch for more updates as Sandy closes in on our coastline.
