PERTH AMBOY - Most of New Jersey is still cleaning up from the storm that hit the region Thursday night, including Perth Amboy.

The National Weather Service says a tornado did not touch down in Perth Amboy, but rather a "straight line wind event." They say the funnel cloud everyone saw never reached the ground.

Lifejackets were found tossed all along the Perth Amboy shoreline from the storm, and workers from the Cornucopia Princess boat tour company say they spent all of Friday afternoon picking them up.

Tornado or not, the Cornucopia Princess was in ship shape and sailing again Friday.
