During the stormy weather which passed through much of North and Central Jersey Monday evening, trees came down on two homes in different Middletown communities causing residents to relocate. 

In the first incident, just before 10:55 p.m., firefighters were dispatched to 40 Leonard Avenue after a tree crashed down on a house, causing substantial damage. 

Police say there were no injuries reported, but the family was displaced.

According to police, at approximately 11 p.m., a tree fell on a home at 10 Southside Avenue, causing severe damage to the house, but no one suffered injuries.
