After nearly 500 Brick residents lost power Wednesday afternoon, most had the lights back on by Thursday morning.
Jersey Central Power & Light reported just eight customers without power township-wide by 5 a.m.
Brick also survived the first ocean high tide of the latest nor'easter. There were no breaches of the oceanfront anywhere on either of Ocean County's two barrier islands. An earlier rumor of a breach was determined to be untrue by officials.
Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis said while Route 35 remained opened, there was one small washover of the township's dune berm near the Ocean Club condominium complex, formerly known as the Thunderbird.
"Some residents, for some reason, decided to take sand from the berm and level it off," he said.
Township officials were on hand to monitor the second ocean high tide, which occurred at 3:08 a.m.
As of 5 a.m, no officials reported any issues, nor did any scanner chatter indicate any anomalous events on the barrier island.
Mantoloking officials said their oceanfront areas survived the first high tide period as well.
"We have made it through the first high tide without any washovers or breaches," the police department said in an update posted online.
"If the situation worsens overnight we will use the reverse 911 system to alert residents," the department said.
The next high tide on Barnegat Bay, calculated at the Mantoloking Bridge, will occur at 7:58 a.m.
