HACKETTSTOWN - People across New Jersey are cleaning up after a fast-moving storm Tuesday night left several New Jersey towns with some severe damage.
Bill Lazarus says Tuesday afternoon's storm left his Hackettstown neighborhood looking like a war-zone. The first floor of his home flooded and a decades-old tree uprooted and is now leaning against his roof.
"It's Mother Nature showing us its strength," says Lazarus. "Never seen so many trees come down."
On Prospect Street, at least seven trees came down from the strong winds. Downed trees and power lines were also reported in several other northern New Jersey communities.
Weather officials say the winds were between 40 and 50 mph during the storm.
No one was injured during the storm.
