Crews clean up damage from weekend storms, heavy wind

Posted: Updated:
EDISON -

This weekend's weather caused damage around the state.

In Edison, the wind and rain brought down wires and closed down roads while crews tried to clear them.

The wind caused a tree to fall onto a house in Scotch Plains Sunday afternoon on Lake Avenue. Officials say nobody was hurt.

A similar incident happened in Asbury Park when the wind caused a tree to topple onto a parked car. The tree also ripped up the sidewalk as it pulled out of the ground.

Officials say roads were closed all day in Parsippany, as crews fixed a water main break and sinkhole. The incident happened on Baldwin Road between Route 46 East and Troy Road.

Officials say one driver got stuck in the hole on the street. They say the driver was not injured.
