As if storm-weary New Jersey hadn't suffered enough.
Accuweather.com is reporting that a storm heading up the coast may bring another round of flooding to the state Tuesday night into Wednesday. While the storm just looks like a typical nor'easter, forecasters are worried it may create major flooding:
The concern comes because of the fact that the protective dunes along the coast were basically wiped out from Atlantic City, N.J. on northward. This in turn, allows for any water rise to have free reign to flow into coastal communities with no barriers.
Thankfully, there's still a chance the storm could pass further offshore.
