Storms return, lead to flooding in Monmouth
Wind and driving rain returned to the state Saturday, giving New Jersey residents little time to clean up from this past week?s storms.
The wind-blown damage was joined by isolated flooding from Monmouth County up to Essex County.
"It was a monsoon for about an hour,? says Steve McGuire. ?The trees were all bent over."
In Essex County, the weather has worn a groove over Nutley. More trees came crashing down Saturday, just three days after Wednesday's storm did the same. In Middletown, three inches of rain was accompanied by pea-sized hail.
Mike Mitrovic says he lost power for the second time this week.
"It was scary,? Mitrovic says.
For artist Boris Zherdin, the rains were especially painful. He says that in 45 minutes, art he spent a lifetime creating was damaged when his Middletown Township living room was flooded.
?How do I feel? Terrible,? Zherdin says. ?I'll take it into the garage and figure out what to do with it."
