Evacuations were ordered by Gov. Chris Christie as part of a state of emergency he declared Saturday. Residents of the state’s southern barrier islands must leave their homes by 4 p.m. Sunday. Christie also ordered the evacuation of all Atlantic City casinos and said state parks would close.

Officials say tolls will be suspended on the northbound Garden State Parkway — from Cape May to the Driscoll Bridge — and on the full length of the westbound Atlantic City Expressway. The toll suspension will start at 6 a.m. Sunday.

Atlantic City will begin evacuating its 30,000 residents at noon. Buses will take anyone who wants to leave the island to mainland shelters. The city is also opening its schools as shelters.
