Video shows tornadoes tear through New Jersey, Penn.

Multiple tornados swirled through New Jersey Wednesday, ripping apart and flattening homes amid furious downpours and flash floods from the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

A handful of homes in residential Mullica Hill were flattened and the wind took roofs and chunks of siding off other homes, videos of the damage on social media show. At least nine homes were destroyed in the community, NBC Philadelphia reported.

Other social media videos show an ominous, fast moving cyclone viewed from a backyard in Mullica Hill as trees sway violently in the distance.

“We got a major tornado coming this way,” the video shooter says. “Holy crap,” he adds before calling out to someone “this is definitely a tornado.”

All of the southern part of New Jersey remains under a tornado watch.

The Garden State and surrounding areas were slammed with at least three tornadoes, in Burlington County, Camden County and elsewhere. Much of the area into Pennsylvania has pummeled by Ida, prompting tornado warnings and with downpours that led to evacuations across the region.

One teenager was dead and two people unaccounted for from an apparent tornado near the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, The Associated Press reported.

With over 5 inches of rain by midafternoon on Wednesday, official ordered the evacuation of communities downstream from the Wilmore dam as water overwhelmed the area. Flash floods pummeled roughly 20 homes and washed away trailer’s in western Virginia, where dozens had to be evacuated, according to the AP.
