Heaviest Winds Coming Now and Over Next Few Hours

More than 10,000 people are without power in East Brunswick. Residents have reported seeing transformers blow in the distance.

On Route 130 in South Brunswick, five power lines have fallen across the road and 40,000 people are without power.

In East Brunswick, more than 10,000 people are without power.

Milltown also is without power, but its substation is intact.

And the highest winds could be yet to come. According to weather.com, the strongest winds are expected now through midnight or 1 a.m. with gusts of 50 to 60 mphs through Tuesday morning. The winds could still uproot trees, but by then the primary damage will have been done.
