NJ OEM Closely Watching Conditions Expected to Impact the Garden State Through Friday Morning

The NJ Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) is monitoring a coastal storm expected to impact the State tonight into Friday morning, bringing with it heavy rain, high winds, coastal flooding and snow in some areas. Governor Chris Christie has ordered the activation of the State Emergency Operations Center at 7:00 a.m. Wednesday.

“We face changing conditions starting tonight,” said Colonel Rick Fuentes, State Police Superintendent and Director of the NJ Office of Emergency Management. “We are closely monitoring the situation with our partners from the National Weather Service and the County Offices of Emergency Management. Be especially careful if you are on the road; there is a potential for snow and slippery conditions. We also remind drivers not to drive through ponded or standing water, on road impacted by heavy rain. Those who live in coastal communities should be aware of the potential for high winds and flooding, and follow instructions if given by local emergency officials.”

The NJOEM works closely with the National Weather Service and the National Hurricane Center regarding storm predictions and forecasts. TLS.
