A man fishing at Takanassee Lake in Long Branch was struck by lightning and roads throughout northern New Jersey were tied up by fast-rising water. 

Nickel-sized hail was reported in Woodbridge, Highlands and Middletown.

Power outages are at a minimum according to the JCP+L and PSE+G outage maps.

Atlantic Highland resident Tom Erickson told the Asbury Park Press that Wednesday’s deluge was the heaviest he has seen in the 28 years he’s lived in the area.

Roads affected by floods included Interstate 80 and Route 17 in Bergen County.

The condition of the lightning strike victim was not immediately available.
