Big Bark But Little Bite in Brick from Storm
200 customers experienced power outages
A cold front that blew through Tuesday night knocked down some tree branches, whipped up winds and turned Barnegat Bay white with foam, but left little in the way of major damage in its wake.
By 1 a.m. Wednesday, Jersey Central Power & Light reported 201 customers without power town-wide.
The storm system, a cold front, was moving at 55 m.p.h. by the time it affected Brick, leading to a relatively quick appearance in town.
There were no reports of road closures or major flooding due to the storm, though some flooding was reported in the township's barrier island section near the period of high tide before the storm hit.
A video posted to Facebook Tuesday afternoon showed waves breaching a bulkhead at the end of Drum Point Road.
Wednesday's forecast is looking nicer, though cooler.
The National Weather Service office in Mt. Holly is predicting clouds through mid-morning, then gradual clearing with a high near 72. Wednesday night's low is forecast to be 54 degrees.
The remainder of the week should bring clear skies with highs in the mid-70s, NWS said.
