New Jersey cleaning up storm damage

The storms may be over, but they left behind widespread damage like downed trees and downed power lines.

For 60 years, twin oaks stood sentry in the back yard of Chris Chamberry's house in Leonia, New Jersey.

They were planted together and Thursday, they came down together.

Around 12:30 p.m. a storm ripped through this neighborhood like a wrecking ball.

It tore down trees that have stood for generations, snapped telephone poles at the base, and left cables dangling.

It was as mighty as it was brief.

But before it left, trees slammed into homes and crushed cars, and just scared the heck out of people.
