Gov. Christie Declares a State of Emergency; State Offices Closed Tuesday


As a powerful nor’easter heads towards the Garden State, Governor Christie has declared a State of Emergency.

According to a press release, the declaration, “authorizes the State Director of Emergency Management to activate and coordinate the preparation, response, and recovery efforts for the storm with all county and municipal emergency operations and governmental agencies.”

This declaration does not restrict travel in the state, but commuters are asked to use extreme caution while traveling across the state.

Gov. Christie said, “this severe winter storm is expected to produce tonight through Tuesday afternoon significant snow accumulations, winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour, freezing temperatures, widespread coastal flooding and hazardous whiteout travel conditions. During these threatening conditions, I urge all New Jerseyans to remain off the roads so our first responders and public safety officers can safely and efficiently handle emergency situations.”

Due to the storm, all state offices will be closed on Tuesday. Essential employees should report to work on their regular schedule.
