Major wind storm hits East Orange, NJ
10/28/12 - 10/29/12
10/28/12 about 6:00 PM - A huge (more than 100)
flock of black birds with a blue sheen began flying from south to
north ahead of the advancing hurricane.
Sycamore Tree down between two houses on Melrose
Avenue, East Orange. Root system dead. Car beneath it damaged. At
8:15 PM a large tree branch fell across the road at about the
same spot on the same street. It was too dark and rainy to
photograph and too big for us to move, so we called the Fire
Department and let them handle it.
The storm has moved on to
Pennsylvania and from there to northern New York State.
The following photos show some of the damage that was left behind
in East Orange.
