... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, NJ has confirmed a
tornado near Howell in Monmouth County, New Jersey on June 24,
2017.

A storm survey found several trees uprooted and snapped in the
home depot parking lot where the tornado had approximately
touched down. A video posted on social media captured the tornado
as it moved southeast through the home depot parking lot. In the
same shopping center, metal roofing from a Chase bank was torn
and later found a half mile away.

Numerous large Hardwood trees were uprooted with others snapped
toward the top of the trunks at the southbound jug handle on Route
9 and West Farms Road as the tornado tracked to the southeast.
Numerous uprooted and snapped trees were found in ideal Plaza. A
large metal container for clothing donations was knocked over.
Three cars that were parked in the shopping center parking lot at
the time the tornado moved through were pushed into each other.

The storm then caused roofing and siding damage to the building
occupied by ice cream on 9. A fence and additional trees were
downed on the property as well. The cloth draping on a nearby
billboard sign was torn off.

The tornado likely dissipated shortly after. Evidence from the
storm survey and radar indicated the tornado tracked to the
southeast adjacent to the south bound side of Route 9 for a half
mile and was on the ground for less than two minutes.

The National Weather Service would like to thank Monmouth County
and Howell emergency management and the Howell Police Department
for their assistance.

another EF-0 tornado near Howell in Monmouth County New Jersey on
June 24, 2017.

A storm survey found a second tornado about 3.5 miles to the
east-southeast of the first tornado. This tornado tracked briefly
through Oak Glen Park. A large Pine Tree near a soccer field in
the park was snapped toward the base of the trunk and several
large metal trash cans were pushed over, with all of these damage
indicators facing to the southeast. On the other side of the
soccer field, numerous Hardwood trees were uprooted, falling to
the northeast. There were additional downed trees in the park as
the storm moved southeast before quickly dissipating.

The National Weather Service would like to thank Monmouth County
and Howell emergency management and the Howell Police Department
