... Summary...
the National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has confirmed a
microburst /straight line wind damage/ near Browns Mills in
Burlington County New Jersey on 6/24/17.

A path of damage began on Crescent drive with several downed
trees and power lines. The damage then extended southeast onto
Trenton Road where multiple power poles were downed. Sporadic
damage then occurred on Broadway and pear roads. Damage was also
noted on either side of Mirror Lake with a few more trees that
were taken down.

Several signs point to this being straight line wind damage. All
the trees were pointed to the southeast as the wind came in from
the west and northwest. Also, the damage was concentrated at
first but the spanned outward from a path in both directions
typical of a microburst.

We want to thank the Browns Mills volunteer fire company and
Police Department for their assistance with this survey along
with residents who took time to provide to speak with the survey
team.

This information can also be found on our website at
weather.Gov/phi.

For reference:
a microburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow
area of less than 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting less
than 5 minutes. Microbursts may induce dangerous horizontal and
vertical wind shears, which can adversely affect aircraft
performance and cause property damage. Straight-line winds are
generally any wind that is not associated with rotation, used
mainly to differentiate them from tornadic winds.
