Long Beach Island Weather
The weather on the island can change quickly. It is a barrier island that is only slightly above sea level. This can easily lead to flooding from tides an rain.
Nor’easters and hurricanes can be life threatening. The Nor’easter of March 1962 caused widespread loss of life and property.
