“This Was a Nasty One:”

A strong overnight storm, with winds of up to 60 miles per hour, battered the state late Thursday, October 31, into Friday, November 1. Statewide, more than 14,000 homes and businesses were without power early Friday, and portions of major roads were closed due to either flooding or downed wires.

An Enhanced Fujita 1 (EF1) tornado was confirmed to have touched down in Harding Township, said Fire Chief Chris Mullin. An EF1 tornado, with maximum speeds of 100 miles per hour, also touched down in Madison, where a state of emergency was declared.

In Livingston, the winds did their share of damage as well. “This was a nasty one,” said Department of Public Works (DPW) superintendent Mike Anello. “I believe we may have gotten brushed by the tornado that hit Madison.We definitely had wind gusts that exceeded 60 miles per hour.”
