Severe weather certainly made its mark in New Jersey, where strong storms ripped through the area Tuesday night.

Already-saturated ground was no match for wind gusts up to 62 mph, reported by the National Weather Service. Tree damage and trees becoming uprooted were perhaps the most prevalent results, with some fallen limbs and trunks smashing into homes and cars, with many road closures as they took down power lines.

According to the National Weather Service, reports of hail up to 1.75 inches was seen in Staten Island and parts of New Jersey. Golf ball sized ice balls reportedly damaged roofs in the area.
