A tree crashed down onto a home along Jumping Brook Road in the Lincroft section of Middletown.
“It's a little unusual, but we get the winds and the age of the trees, it happens,” says Dennis Fowler, with the Middletown Township Fire Department.
The homeowner was away when the tree crashed into the side of his house. The township will now have to inspect the property to see if the homeowner can return inside.
Strong overnight winds also knocked down a tree in Holmdel Township, blocking Centerville Road and bringing with it power lines. 
Outages were scattered across the region. Because of lingering strong winds, it may take crews longer to repair the downed lines, according to JCP&L. 
There were no injuries to report.
