The Jersey Shore has been dealing with hide-tide, powerful winds and flooded roads after the latest winter storm barrelled through on Thursday.

Many of New Jersey's beach communities are still trying to recover from the flooding and damage left from Superstorm Sandy.

Video shows parts of Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright swamped with river water, forcing police officials to block off the main road there. 

The National Weather Service issued coastal flood warnings, which will remain in effect until Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, coastal towns in Massachusetts were also bracing for powerful waves Friday.

Officials say there's a chance the high tide will carry away the sand barriers that are protecting their homes. 

A slow Friday morning commute was expected as well as the storm continues to bring waves of heavy snow and strong winds from the Atlantic to New England.

20 to 30 cm of snow is forecast in central Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island, while 15-25 cm is possible in Boston and nearby areas. 

That could affect those with March Break travel plans south of the border. 

The late-winter storm buried parts of the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic before sweeping into New England.
