It may take New Jersey a few more days to tally the damage to its beaches from last week's nor'easter.

Crews from the state Department of Environmental Protection had planned to inspect the beaches Monday, but pushed that back at least a day to coordinate with state emergency management officials.

The three-day storm took large chunks out of beaches in several spots, and threatened several homes on Long Beach Island.

It's being called one of the most damaging coastal storms in recent state history.

The southern part of the state was hardest hit, with widespread tidal flooding in Cape May and Atlantic counties.

Gov. Jon S. Corzine on Sunday declared states of emergency in six New Jersey counties.
