We had a localized hail storm this afternoon at 3 pm that dropped 1.5 inches of rain and shredded tender foliage. The hail was observed in Northern Warren County but the storm crossed Sussex and Morris and headed into central jersey as well. Not sure how widespread the damage is at this point but thought attached photos of hail and damaged summer squash foliage would be of interest.
