No tornados were seen in Ridgewood or Glen Rock, but the two municipalities didn't exactly escape without damage.
Heavy winds and rain knocked branches down late Saturday afternoon (see the video above), closing streets and knocking out power for at least 1,000 homeowners.
Bergen County remains under a tornado watch until 9 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
About a dozen smaller roads in Ridgewood are closed or partially closed due to downed branches, Ridgewood Police Lt. Todd Harris said. All of the main arteries, however, are open. Police have cordoned off the affected streets and are awaiting response by PSE&G, he said.
Between 501 and 2,000 homes are without power in the village, according to the PSE&G outage map.
A large tree branch fell near the intersection of Maple and Ackerman avenues in Glen Rock, closing Maple Avenue.
Another tree branch toppled onto the train tracks between Rock Road and Ackerman Avenue at around 6 p.m., according to witness Boyd Loving. Train service was delayed about 45 minutes on the Bergen Line as crews removed the branch, Loving said.
Glen Rock police could not be reached Saturday around 6:45 p.m.
The PSE&G outage map shows between 501 and 2000 homes without power in the borough.
