Mullica Hill Tornado: Several homes destroyed after tornado hits New Jersey town

“It is likely that multiple tornadoes have touched down within our communities,” one official said.

Officials in southern New Jersey are reporting devastating storm damage after a tornado swept through the region on Wednesday.

Video captured multiple homes destroyed in the Mullica Hill section of Gloucester County.

The tornado destroyed at least nine homes, with some leveled to their foundations, along Josephine and Marvin lanes early Wednesday evening. 

One resident said he watched his neighbor’s home being torn apart while with his wife and children.

“I heard the rumble and I seen stuff flying and I told my wife and kids to get in the basement,” he said. “And I looked out the window and I seen their house going. First thing I did was run over to their house to make sure they were alright.”

Glen Pickell said he heard the tornado warning on the news but did not think it would materialize, telling his worried son “we don’t get tornadoes.”

“We didn’t think anything was going to happen then all of a sudden you hear the rumbling,” Pickell said. “You look outside and it’s like everybody get your butts in the basement. It didn’t last that long. Maybe five minutes. But once it was over, it’s crazy. You could see the damage it did.”

“It is likely that multiple tornadoes have touched down within our communities,” one official said.

Firefighters and first responders scoured the neighborhood looking for possible victims that may have been trapped in the rubble of damaged homes.

“Every house we’ve checked, they’re safe,” one firefighter told NBC10. 

The firefighter said he had never seen anything like Wednesday’s destruction in Mullica Hill. 

The National Weather Service reported that debris from some of the destroyed homes was pulled into the tornado and reached the atmosphere, traveling around 23,000 feet into the air before landing miles away.

Right across the street, Bonnenberg’s neighbor bore the brunt of this storm. Aluminum siding, roofing, furniture and children’s toys were all piled on top of a family’s car. The house is now unlivable.

“It’s horrible. You never expect anything like this to happen in this area because you’re not in the Midwest,” said Robin Wilson Smith of Mullica Hill.

“There’s a lot of hurt in New Jersey,” Murphy told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday as he discussed damage caused by flooding in the northern part of the state and tornadoes in the southern part of the state.

Residents in the county are being asked to stay in their homes unless emergency evacuation is needed. Multiple power lines are down and could cause injury.

Some of the debris landed as far Mercer County, New Jersey, and Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a distance of about 60 miles from Mullica Hill for each location.

The remnants of Ida is also causing widespread flooding, power outages and damage throughout the entire region.
