Basement here is dry. I put the extension leaders on the downspouts
yesterday and some plastic pipe to carry the water to the street curb.

I believe that. The surf is extremely angry. Storm and astronomical
high tide from the full moon. That's not a pleasant combination for
those immediate shoreline dwellers. I lived a block from the beach
when Gloria came up the NJ coast. The apartments on the first floor
got flooded out. I lived on the second. I had to wade in water to
my groin to get out the next day. A little farther inland is safer
and much drier! :)
