BREAKING: President Biden Approves Disaster Declaration for New Jersey

President Joe Biden today approved a long-standing request to declare that a major disaster exists in New Jersey in regard to a severe winter storm that hit the state on January 31st, knocking out power for tens of thousands, some for days. 

The declaration, which applies to Ocean, Morris, Cape May, Sussex, and Warren counties, will allow federal assistance to supplement state and local recovery efforts.

Federal funding will be available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged in the storm.

Additionally, funds will be made available for snow removal costs related to the incident.

  1. Haha! Did he just wake up?? He has been in hibernation since January 20th, so I guess he was sleeping on the 31st! He woke up to gather some nuts on March 25th, but those that saw him said he was still in a stupor!
