Monday night’s storm in the Northeastern U.S. resulted in numerous instances of downed trees and power lines in Lakewood.
Fifteen thousand Lakewood customers lost power initially, Lakewood Committeeman Meir Lichtenstein told Hamodia. Utility company JCP&L called in extra crews from surrounding areas to work on restoring power; by early Tuesday afternoon, fewer than 3,000 customers were without power. Power restoration is expected to take longer on the northern side of Lakewood, which sustained more serious damage.
According to TheLakewoodScoop.com, at least one tree crashed through a home, and two people had to be extricated from their car after a tree crashed on it. There were no injuries.
