The storm knocked the roof off a Camden County College building and caused a partial roof collapse at an Atlantic City apartment building.
A house was also struck by lightning in Basking Ridge.
Rides at the Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park in Jackson were briefly shuttered after the park lost power.
Moorestown Police posted several pictures of downed trees and power lines on their Twitter page.
The department also posted a picture of a dog that wandered into a business in Whittendale Drive during the storm. The dog was wearing a red collar that said “Belle.”
No major delays were reported on the state’s major roadways.
But the Camden Riverline service was briefly suspended between the Pennsauken Transit Center and Route 73 in Pennsauken due to a downed tree blocking the tracks.
Roughly 43,000 people had no power as of Wednesday afternoon, but nearly all those customers were expected to have their service restored by Wednesday night.
