Just a couple months after Hurricane Sandy struck, Long Beach Island, N.J. is once again underwater. The Long Beach Township Police Department issued a statement this morning warning residents of the flooded area.

"This in your police department contacting you on the morning of 12/27/2012. We are advising you that at this time Long Beach Blvd. is experiencing significant flooding and is impassable between 21st and 31st streets in Ship Bottom. Other areas of Long Beach Blvd. are passable but significantly flooded. We encourage you to wait for the tide to recede before attempting to access the south end of the island."

The flooding came a day after the Surf City fire department responded to a fire on S. 1st Street. Firefighters arrived on the scene at around 5 p.m. Wednesday evening to find a "three story wood framed residential dwelling with heavy fire and smoke showing." According to the Surf City Volunteer Fire Company that fire was put out around 7:29 p.m.

The Asbury Park Press reports that only one home, a vacant summer residence, was affected. Surf City Fire Chief Brian Stasik told reporters that a few fighters and one victim were taken to Southern Ocean Medical Center with minor injuries. The home is believed to be "a total loss."

Chief Stasik cited the weather as a "major factor" in getting the blaze under control sooner.

An investigation is currently underway to uncover the cause of the fire.
