“We’re used to it,” said Manasquan resident Cindy Groves.
“There is a new moon high tide and we have a storm,” Baker said.
“Right, so it’s going to come up. It was worse two hours ago, up in our yard, through our driveway. We had to wait a couple of hours before we could get into the road. You live here, you learn,” Groves said.
