Suspected Tornado in Jersey Shore Town Damaged at Least 35 Homes
At least 35 homes in the High Bar Harbor section of Long Beach Island were damaged and three people were injured when a suspected tornado hit the Jersey Shore town Thursday night during fierce storms that triggered a dozen tornado warnings, officials said.
Fifteen of the homes on northern end of the island sustained ‘extensive’ damage with some having their roofs ripped off, Long Beach Township police said Friday.
Three people were treated at the scene for cuts from flying debris, officer Megan Keller said.
Those 15 homes remain without power Friday morning, though Atlantic City Electric has replaced five damaged utility poles and restored electricity to customers that lost power during the storm.
