Governor Christie Declares State Of Emergency

Governor Chris Christie called New Jersey 101.5 this evening to declare a state of emergency due to the heavy wet snow of the historic Halloween Weekend snowstorm. 

The storm has brought down trees, limbs and powerlines in many parts of Central and Northern New Jersey.  The result has been massive traffic jams, closed roads and highways and power failures affecting over 665,000 customers of JCPL and PSEG. 

The state of emergency is in effect for the entire state.  The Governor said north and central Jersey can expect 8-14 inches of snow before it ends between 9 and midnight tonight.

  • As of 6:30pm Saturday, 25 state roads are closed and  60 are partially closed.  The Governer said residents need to stay away from downed power lines and to stay home tonight. 

    Power companies from out of state are in New Jersey helping the local crews restore power as timely as possible.  Crews will be plowing, salting and sanding roads all night into the morning.
