The latest Nor'easter has impacted millions of people from the Ohio Valley to the Mid-Atlantic.  Nor'easters bring heavy snow and wind to the Atlantic Coast, but the effects can reach areas far inland.  In fact, strong northeast winds will cause coastal flooding and high surf on the Great Lakes.  That's exactly what happened Tuesday along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio.  Lakefront communities in Erie County and Ottawa County dealt with water surrounding homes, flooding streets, and freezing on trees. Thankfully, the threat of coastal flooding along the shore of Lake Erie has diminished.  However, it will remain a concern along the Atlantic coast into Thursday morning. Waves have been battering many areas including the Jersey Shore. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/976550542775279616 Be sure to keep it tuned to WeatherNation for the very latest Nor'easter information. -Meteorologist Joe Astolfi
