BAYVILLE - Officials and residents in the Village of Bayville are preparing for possible flooding as a nasty nor'easter lashes the area.

Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the Bayville area, with heavy flooding and beach erosion.

To keep damage to a minimum this time around, Mayor Doug Watson says crews have shored up the coastline with extra sand and have pumped out the village's drainage system, in case there's a lot of rainfall.
