Huh? There were plenty of homes with damage in Madison. What was the reporting agency?

What is the article about? 800 businesses in Madison? I can't image there being more than 50 business unless Madison is way bigger than I know it is. And what is the definition of impacted? I don't think I saw any damages to any businesses. No houses in Madison damaged? Somebody needs to relook at this article and the NJ Spotlight one because it needs a little bit of help.
