MENDHAM TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Strong storms have rolled through New Jersey, leveling a barn and leaving thousands without power, including Gov. Chris Christie.

As of late Thursday night, more than 11,000 customers were still in the dark.

WABC-TV reports the storms knocked down trees in front of Christie’s home in Mendham Township, Morris County.

The (Easton) Express-Times reports the worst of the damage was in Warren County, where officials tell the newspaper that it appears straight-line winds destroyed a barn in White Township.

Downed trees and power lines were reported around the state.
