    Violent storms sweep through South Jersey, damaging two mobile homes, but causing no injuries. NBC10's Claudia Rivero assesses the damage. (Published Wednesday, Aug 15, 2012)

    Residents living in the Vineland Hills Mobile Home Park tell NBC10 the storm only lasted for about 15 minutes, but it did some major damage.

    Rain, hail, and strong winds brought down several trees in Cumberland County. "It really looked like a tornado. The wind was really going. The lawn chairs were all over the place," said Kristina Afanador, Vineland, N.J.

    Afanador was home with her 22 month old daughter when a tree crashed through the roof of her home. The young mother says while the tree did major damage to her house, it could have been a lot worse.

    "My daughter was on the sofa when it hit and she just started screaming and I panicked and we just left," said Afanador, who says her daughter wasn't hurt.
