Strong storms end NJ heat wave

Thousands of New Jerseyans were without power early Sunday night after a series of fast-moving, severe storms roared through the state.    But despite the problems they caused, the storms were welcomed by many residents because they ended a brutal four-day heat wave.    The storms that hit Sunday afternoon contained strong winds, heavy rains and — in some cases — lightning and large hail.    Besides the power outages, the storms knocked down many trees and caused some minor flooding.
