NEW JERSEY (PIX11) – Governor Chris Christie has declared a state of emergency in New Jersey as a significant winter storm approaches.
“This winter storm is expected to arrive tonight and last through early Friday morning, and the heavy snow will create hazardous travel conditions across the state,” said Governor Christie. “I’ve authorized state officials to continue all necessary actions, and my Administration will monitor conditions throughout the remainder of the storm. I encourage all New Jerseyans to drive carefully and remain off the roads if possible so that our first responders and public safety officials can safely respond to any emergency situations.”
The messy storm is expected to bring heavy snow, freezing temperatures and rain that could combine to create dangerous driving conditions.
PSE&G is preparing for power outages as falling trees and flooding are both expected.
