According to the warning, places like Jackson, Jacksons Mills, Freewood Acres, Lakewood, Farmingdale, Howell, Colingwood Park, Asbury Park, Belmar, and Tinton Falls could be affected before 6:40p.m. today. The National Weather Service says that the strong winds are gusting 60 to 70 miles per hour.

The Warning also cautioned people for their safety because the tornado was predicted to be enveloped by strong wind s and rain. They advised the people to be at basement, as it’s the safest place. Getting into a sturdy furniture is another option. They suggested that in absense of basements, they could stay at the lowermost floor of the building they are on, which could be a room. Staying close to windows was discouraged. Getting into a shelter was the first thing people in vehicles should do.
