It didn't rain, but there was Flooding in Strathmere

In the afternoon, the tide was so high that it was coming up over the new metal bulkheads across the front of the point, and into the street at Neptune and Seaview.
Much of Bayview was flooded by the overflowing bay, and sea water was coming up through the storm drains flooding Commonwealth from Willard to Vincent.
Here are 2 blurry photos that I snapped with my cellphone. This was when the water was just starting to rise. The street was eventually filled with several inches of water that stayed for several hours.
