Rounds of heavy rain will begin to move into the area later tonight, leading to the increased potential for flooding. A Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area from now through Thursday and a Winter Storm Warning goes into effect tomorrow. As we head into Wednesday, temperatures will drop and transition our rain to sleet and eventually to snow. Most of the area could see several inches of snow and sleet before it's all said and done. Keep it locked right here for updates.
SEA BRIGHT, N.J. (AP) - Should I stay or should I go? That's the question some people are asking in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
The storm renewed a debate on whether damaged areas should be restored to the way they were, or whether it's cheaper in the long run to buy out property in flood-prone areas and let nature reclaim the land.
Hard-hit Sea Bright N.J., where three-quarters of the residents remain homeless, vows to rebuild - only higher this time.
But homeowners in the Oakwood Beach section of New York's Staten Island want the government to buy them out.
Several states have tried small-scale buyouts after past floods, but large-scale depopulations are easier said than done. New Orleans considered backing away from some low-lying areas after Hurricane Katrina, but a public outcry halted that plan.
