Forecasters believe a supercell storm packing wind gusts as high as 65 mph pounded Freehold and Freehold Township on Saturday night.

Jersey Central Power & Light says 1,614 customers remained without power Monday night. Most of them are in the Freehold area, and officials say most of them should have their service back by midnight Monday.

In addition to taking down power lines, fallen trees also are blocking many roads. Freehold’s mayor has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew.

The storms damaged several tents and the grounds at the Monmouth County Fair in Freehold Township, forcing officials to cancel the fair’s final day of events on Sunday.
