A strong nor’easter triggered flooding along the southern barrier islands of Long Island, New York, on Friday, March 2. A coastal flood warning was in effect through Saturday morning, a news report said.
A storm surge associated with the storm flooded Long Beach during the morning high tide, and a surge of one to two feet was expected with Friday night’s high tide. The storm also carried with it high winds with gusts up to 60-70 miles per hour in some areas in the northeast.
