FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — Utility crews have restored electricity to a New Jersey down that took a pounding in a weekend thunderstorm.

Workers are cleaning up the damage in Freehold Tuesday following a dusk-to-dawn curfew.

Forecasters believe a "supercell" storm packing wind gusts of more than 60 mph blasted the community on Saturday. The strong winds uprooted and snapped trees and downed power lines.

About a dozen roads were closed until the debris was cleared.
