State of Emergency Now in Effect as Severe Weather Moves In

A State of Emergency is now in effect statewide as severe weather moves into New Jersey. Dangerous weather conditions are expected to last throughout the night and into the middle of the week.

Governor Phil Murphy issued an executive order earlier Monday putting New Jersey under a state of emergency, warning that serious loss of life could be incurred if residents are not vigilant about their safety.

“The anticipated Nor’easter storm is forecast to bring significant flash flooding, coastal flooding, and wind gusts across New Jersey. Residents should stay off the roads, remain vigilant, and follow all safety protocols,” the governor said in signing the order.

A September severe weather storm – the remnants of Hurricane Ida – brought massive flooding to New Jersey and New York, and killed over two dozen in the Garden State alone. Emergency response officials have used that storm to warn residents not to take states of emergency lightly – it is in place for a reason.
