But relief was finally on the way for weather-weary residents, as the powerful storm system - born from the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida - was exiting the region.

Rain had stopped falling in most areas by early Saturday afternoon, while gusty winds were beginning to calm. However, coastal flood and high surf advisories were extended in most areas until 11 a.m. Sunday.

Meanwhile, officials were working to determine how much beach erosion was caused by the storm, which spurred flooding, downed trees and caused scattered power outages throughout the state.
