BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — The National Weather Service confirmed that an EF0 tornado touched down in Berkley Heights on Monday afternoon.
The twister set down and traveled approximately 4.8 miles through New Providence into Summit with sustained winds of 85 mph, the NWS said. The agency also said it received reports of a funnel cloud from witnesses.
“Looking outside it was just like you see in the movies, it was just stuff flying,” resident Steven Escott told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell. “Looked up and just the tops of the tress were just spinning.”
