TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) - Officials are beginning to assess the beach erosion and flood damage caused by a major nor’easter snowstorm that churned the surf and caused tides to swell in southern New Jersey.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin on Monday plan to visit the Ortley Beach section of Toms River, the Holgate section of Long Beach Township, Stone Harbor and North Wildwood.

Many homes were flooded on North Wildwood’s west side. Cape May, Stone Harbor and Ocean City saw record flooding.

Harvey Cedars police are warning people about a significant dune drop off at 68th Street. Parts of a bulkhead were damaged along the South Inlet section of Atlantic City.

Gov. Chris Christie said the flooding wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
