red-bank-storms-041519-500x454-1517754The Weather Channel app early Monday showed potentially severe storms expected to roll across the Greater Red Bank Green over a two-hour period ending at 7 a.m.

Shortly after 1 a.m., the National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for the region that includes eastern Monmouth County, with the threat also expected to end by 7 a.m. (Tornado preparation info is here.)

In addition, the NWS warned of strong winds, with gusts of up to 50 miles per hour, between noon and 10 p.m. “With the ground saturated from previous rain, trees and power lines will be more susceptible to the adverse effects of strong winds,” the NWS warned.
