Flooding has returned to Margate, with dune work having been halted for a week due to previous heavy rains and the emergence of the so-called "Lake Christie".

Meteorologist Dan Zarrow says the shore town got about an inch and a half of rain on Monday.

Several Jersey Shore towns, including Seaside Heights and Long Beach Township, have already banned "beach spreading," or putting up big tents on the beach.

Next week Belmar is expected to join them.

Leave your pet exposed to bad weather for extended time, or tie it down cruelly, and you risk having it taken away, under a shore-based law enacted by Governor Christie.

The measure by senators Jim Holzapfel and Bob Singer assigns fines for violators, plus care costs.

Tomorrow, the Holbrook little league team from Jackson faces off against a team from Pennsylvania in the Mid-Atlantic baseball semifinals.

Team president Tony Del Vecchio says the boys are pitching, hitting and catching better than ever.

"They're playing their game, they're not letting anything get in their way at this point," said Del Vecchio.

Sunday's game against a team from Washington D.C. ended in the fourth inning because of a mercy rule.

Holbrook won the game 16 to 6.
