Wicked weekend weather leaves many without power

? Residents in New Jersey dealt with the aftermath of stormy weather that tore through the region over the weekend.

Utility companies reported early Monday scattered outages throughout the area. For some residents, adjusting to life without electricity was a little tough.

Machiski and other residents got by with the use of generators.
