Flooding and beach erosion are the aftermath of the nor'easter that battered the East Coast for three days before heading out to sea.

In Ocean City, N.J., an emergency official says many neighborhoods are still completely flooded because water couldn't drain between high tides. Flooding is expected to be a worry for New Jersey coastal communities through high tide Saturday morning.

Flooding has also caused problems in the Carolinas and Virginia. In Virginia Beach, crews were working to stabilize a 570-foot barge carrying containers of chemicals in the Sandbridge area.

Sand dunes in Ocean City, Atlantic City, and several coastal communities were ruined. Plans to assess the erosion were put off because of the bad weather.

The storm is blamed for at least six deaths across three states.
