    Severe winds wreak havoc with power lines in Newark, NJ


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     CarlosMS and a friend were talking about the strong wind in Newark, New Jersey, on Tuesday when they hear loud buzzing and saw flashes of light. They raced to the front of the building and witnessed a light show. The wind had blown the power lines into each other, causing sparks to fly. "Our neighbors reacted in amazement and concern ... As you can see in the video, it happened right in front of people's windows."

    The power company later arrived to repair the damage, he said.
