Storm Leaves Hundreds Withouth Power in Princeton Area

A tree fell during the storm and damaged a house on Harris Road.

Up to 500 Princeton area residents are still waiting for their power to be restored as of 4:30 p.m. today as a result of damage caused by fast-moving storms  that blew through central and southern New Jersey last night.

The storms knocked out power lines and brought down trees in the area, causing several roads to be closed.  Route 1 Southbound at Carnegie was closed Sunday night for more than an hour. In Princeton, Route 206 between Ewing and Herrontown,  the 200 block of Dodds Lane, Leabrook Lane, Roper at White Pine, and Magnolia at Broadripple were among the road closures.

Some residents in West Windsor, Hopewell, Ewing and Trenton were also without power. An estimated 20,000 people across the state were waiting to have their power restored today as temperatures reached the 90s.
