During high tide in the storm Tuesday, fire departments had to rescue several people and cars from flood waters, officials said.
Ventnor Fire Chief John Hazlett said during high tide around 10 a.m. Tuesday, the department was called out for several car and victim rescues trapped in high waters throughout the city.
In Atlantic City, fire Chief Scott Evans said there were multiple reports of vehicles stuck in high waters in the city. The Atlantic City Fire Department attempted to block roadways that were experiencing flooding.
Some of the rescues were at Dudely and Fulton avenues, Monmouth and Derby avenues and Swarthmore and Ventnor avenues in Ventnor, and at West End Avenue and Delaware Avenue in Atlantic City.
With high tide and consistent heavy rain, Hazlett said there was no place for most of the water to go, resulting in high waters.
All rescues were successful and the victims were moved to safety, he said.
Hazlett reiterated that the incidents were avoidable, however.
"Be aware of the flood prone areas in your community," he said. "Definitely no need to drive in these waters."
