NJ Builds Up Shore Dunes Ahead of Nor’easter

A nor’easter is already bringing winds gusting to 30 mph and heavy wet snow to portions of storm-battered New Jersey.

In Point Pleasant on the Jersey coast, huge waves are crashing Wednesday afternoon close to dunes created by bulldozers and front-end loaders to protect the eroded shoreline.

Gov. Chris Christie warned New Jerseyans in a visit to Long Beach Island that the heavy wet snow from the nor’easter could create a new round of power outages inland.

Winds gusting to 60 mph, a tidal surge of up to 3 feet and several inches of snow are forecast, with the worst conditions ending late in the day.

About 360,000 New Jersey electric customers remain without power as a result of Superstorm Sandy.
