There is no question that this nor’easter, dubbed Winter Storm Jonas by the Weather Channel, was one for the ages--among the most powerful and far-reaching in regional history...

Storm-related surges of 4 to 5 feet were common across northern Delaware and southern New Jersey. These are close to the highest values one would expect in any nor’easter.
