The Bayshore, Northern Monmouth County, is prone to flooding. That is the experience of area residents from Sea Bright (not technically a part of the Bayshore but close enough) to Aberdeen. Some areas flood faster than others.

This morning, Courier staffer Scott Shanley and myself went out to survey the rain and what we found was better than normal conditions in Sea Bright, Highlands and Union Beach. Meanwhile, what appeared to be flooding was starting to become apparent on Leonard and Thompson avenues, respectively, in Belford. In addition, water was starting to significantly collect on Palmer Avenue, near the Route 35 intersetion, also in Middletown.

According to the Middletown police, at about 10:30 a.m., there is no flooding in Middletown as of yet. Above is a photo of a car driving through water at about 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Thompson Avenue and Route 36.
