Tropical Storm Isaias Howls: Damaging Winds Down Trees, Knock Out Power

Downed tree on Ridgewood Avenue by Glen Ridge Country Club.

Howling winds and heavy rain battered New Jersey Tuesday as Tropical Storm Isaias touched down, tearing down trees and power lines. There was even a tornado sighting in Ocean City. Locally, trees have fallen down all over Essex County, and some have hit nearby homes.

More than 1.3 million power outages were reported statewide. Locally, by Tuesday night, some residents had their power restored, while others were still in the dark.
