PHOTOS: Jersey Shore Largely Spared from Nor'easter Flooding

New Jersey's coastal communities hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy suffered little during the recent Nor'easter.

Facing an incoming nor'easter, Jersey Shore towns battered by Hurricane Sandy prepared for the possibility of more coastal flooding in their already vulnerable communities.

Some towns, like Brick, bulked up their beach dunes. In Point Pleasant Beach, officials issued a voluntary evacuation. Other towns, still recovering from Sandy, simply wished for the best.

Aside from a few inches of snow and isolated instances of flooding along the barrier islands, however, New Jersey's coast was mostly spared during most recent weather concern.

Residents in parts of New Jersey, including towns in several counties like Monmouth, Ocean, and Middlesex, woke up to more than 10 inches of snow Saturday morning.

But while the Shore found itself with its fair share of snow in the morning, the dangers of heavy winds and rain - then snow - proved to be unwarranted this time around. Instances of minor flooding were reported in pockets of Seaside Heights and Ocean Beach during and following the nor'easter, though no roads were closed and damage, if any, was minimal.
