National Weather Service confirms 7th tornado touched down in NJ this weekend

The National Weather Service confirmed that a seventh tornado touched down in New Jersey on Saturday during some powerful storms that crossed through the state.
The agency says that this twister passed through Mays Landing and was classified as an EF-1. The tornado had wind speeds of up to 100 mph and traveled for a little less than a mile.
Tornadoes were also reported in Jackson Township, Howell Township, Sea Girt, Cream Ridge, Cinnaminson and Crosswicks. The Jackson tornado was the most powerful, with wind speeds of up to 130 mph.
The tornadoes left a lot of damage across the state. But despite this, there were no reports of any injuries.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Alex Staarmann says that more New Jersey residents are becoming weather aware in recent years.
“There have been a lot of tornadoes in our region over the last four or five years and people see that, they are aware of that. We do have tornadoes in this area. In some cases, they are significant cause significant damage,” Staarmann says.
He says that the severe weather season in New Jersey typically runs from late May to July. He says that despite the number of tornadoes on Saturday, it is too soon to tell if this weather trend will continue.
