Residents in Randolph picking up pieces after storm

RANDOLPH - Thursday's harsh weather wreaked havoc on homes throughout New Jersey, especially in the town of Randolph in Morris County.

The storm, which swept through the area around noon Thursday, uprooted trees and damaged homes. Residents spent all day yesterday and this morning cleaning up branches and laying them out for crews to pick up.

No major damage has been reported, but some who weathered the winds say they were definitely frightened. "We ducked underground," one resident said. "When I popped up to look and I looked in my yard, I saw a disaster. All the trees came down. I was just nauseous."
