Residents tell News 3 southerly winds pushed ocean water into neighborhoods, causing flooding that was 'worse that Hurricane Matthew'.

"I have never seen it this bad," said Suzy Burlock, a resident of Indian Cove Resort, a nearby members only campground.

New Bridge Road, which is right off Sandbridge Road, is also flooded and closed.
