Pictures show the damage caused Monday afternoon by strong winds in Summit.
"The wind was intense, and I felt like I was in the The Wizard of Oz," area resident Rachel Bendock said. "I just couldn't believe the leaves and the branches. I was getting hit in the side of my body with tree limbs."
Trees toppled near homes, bringing down power lines and leaving hundreds without power for several hours.
As a result, there was no school Tuesday at Franklin Elementary School.

JCP&L says power was restored to all customers by 3 p.m.
