PHOTOS & VIDEO: A Micro-burst sweeping through Lakewood Friday afternoon left several families displaced and homes and property severely damaged. At about 2:00 p.m., the storm ripped through several developments in the Prospect Street area, ripping apart roofs, shattering windows, uprooting trees and damaging homes. The incident drew a large response from the Police Department, Fire Department, EMS and OEM.
“It sounded like a freight train”, a neighbor whose home and property was damaged from the storm, tells TLS, and says he sent his wife and children down to the basement.
The most affected area was the High Point development. The nearby Prospect Park Development and Murray Street also suffered moderate damage to homes and vehicles.
Several families were displaced after their were left without a roof over their heads, and the Red Cross was called in.
Many homes in the area were also left without electricity, which required the response from JCP&L.
There were no reports of any injuries.

no wonder the Lakewood building department started enforcing shear wall and high wind design when building a house in Lakewood, because Lakewood is a hurricane prone area.

‘…My house. Whole siding was ripped off…”
This is what happens when you get the cheapest contractors. My house was built 60 years ago by contractors who took pride in their work, unlike today where it’s “build it and get out of there fast”.
