PHOTOS: Flooding Swamps Parts of the Mid-Atlantic

Coastal flooding and heavy rain caused significant problems across the mid-Atlantic region on Friday and more impacts are expected through the weekend.

Many locations from the Carolinas to New Jersey received over an inch of rain. In addition at the coast, strong winds drove the ocean's water onshore and led to coastal flooding.

Road closures, power outages and flight delays were caused as a result of the adverse weather.

Some of the moisture could be traced back to Hurricane Joaquin, but most of it was the result of a separate storm system that crept up the coast. Even more rainfall is expected to fall along the East Coast this weekend, with a potentially historic situation unfolding across the Carolinas.

Additional incidents of coastal flooding may also ensue from the Carolinas to the beaches of the Northeast through the weekend, especially at high tide, as the gusty onshore winds persist.
