Overnight on Friday the area was hit with devastating storms. The thunder and lightning’s performance was both awe inspiring and deadly leaving Atlantic County in a state of emergency, over a hundred thousand without power, and at least three dead.
About 2 a.m. early Saturday morning, a tree toppled onto a tent where a family was camping in Parvin State Park in Salem County. The tree killed two young cousins from Millville, ages 7 and 2, reports Philly.com.
A fisherman was also killed after being swept overboard in the waters off of Atlantic City, near the Brigantine Bridge. His body was found later that morning.
