Winds gusted to 63 mph Monday afternoon in Cape May, New Jersey, and Slaughter Beach, Delaware.

In north Philadelphia, high winds knocked a sign off a wall Monday afternoon, which ended up killing a man in the Hunting Park neighborhood.

Coastal flooding was observed along the Delaware Beaches, Jersey Shore and parts of Long Island, including Atlantic City, Ocean City and North Wildwood in New Jersey and Dewey Beach in Delaware.

This prompted closures of some roadways in these areas, including Delaware Route 1 south of Dewey Beach, New Jersey Route 35 in Belmar and the southbound lanes of the Wantagh State Parkway at the Bay Parkway Bridge east of Point Lookout, New York.

Strong onshore winds pushed waves over the seawall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and widespread dune erosion occurred in parts of the Jersey Shore Monday.
