A state of emergency declared by Gov. Chris Christie remains in effect across all of New Jersey.
New Jersey State Police have reported 222 accidents and 868 motorist aids thus far in this storm. The New Jersey Department of Transportation has all of their assets deployed and will continue to plow and salt roadways, as does the Morris County Department of Public Works.
Please stay off the roadways unless absolutely necessary. We have seen several pictures and videos via social media as well as reports from OEM region representatives of flooding in certain areas. NEVER drive through flooded streets.
New York City has issued a vehicle travel ban within the city. The Port Authority has closed all trans-Hudson crossings into NYC. So, please do not attempt to drive to New York City.
Always know the latest weather information for your area.
REMINDER: NJ is covered by two different weather stations: Mount Holly, NJ for most of the State and Upton, NY for the NE part of the State. For Northeast NJ residents and commuters to/from NYC, please visit: http://www.weather.gov/okx/. For the rest of New Jersey please visit: http://www.weather.gov/phi/.
