Christie declares state of emergency in advance of storm

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie has declared a state of emergency in New Jersey in anticipation of the snow coming tonight and tomorrow.

The declaration also closes state offices on Friday.

“The impending weather conditions over the next several days will produce a variety of dangerous travel conditions throughout the state,” Christie said. “I’ve authorized state officials to take all necessary action in advance of the storm, and my Administration will continue monitoring conditions throughout the remainder of the storm.”

The storm, expected to bring anywhere from a few inches to more than eight in some areas, will also produce winds of more than 30 mph and extremely low temperatures.

The order calls for the state director of emergency management to coordinate response efforts to the storm among counties, municipalities and other government agencies.

The State Police had already urged citizens to exercise caution during the storm.

“The conditions tonight into tomorrow morning will be treacherous,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, the superintendent of the State Police and the director of the state Office of Emergency Management. “We are asking New Jersey residents to stay informed about conditions, review preparedness plans, and check on family members and friends who are elderly, disabled or isolated.”


Christie has urged people to stay indoors during the storm.

“I encourage all New Jerseyans to stay off the roads if possible so that our first responders and public safety officials can safely respond to any emergency situations,” the governor said.
