DAMAGE IN BLACKWOOD— “NorEaster” Nick Pittman (@NorEasterNick) June 9, 2022
Just got done taking a look at everything in person… this is VERY isolated. I’m talking a block of one neighborhood isolated. All damage is leaning in the same direction which makes me suspect straight line winds. Will wait for official word. pic.twitter.com/gNzRGbyyMJ
