The National Weather Service was out canvassing Madison after Friday's storm to determine whether a tornado touched down.
Jeff Paul, the director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management, says the NWS was investigating wind speeds, damage and uprooted trees to see if there was a pattern that would indicate a tornado touched down.
He says some residents suffered property and vehicle damage as a result of the storm, but no injuries were reported. Officials say crews are cleaning up the damage.
A tree on the property of one home on Sherwood Avenue snapped like a twig.
Officials canceled school on Friday in Madison and encouraged residents to stay home.
A state of emergency was lifted but authorities say it's still important to be aware of potential live-downed powerlines.
