A State of Emergency Has Been Issued for NJ
A State of Emergency has been issued for New Jersey as the state prepares itself for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy which is on track to make landfall Monday, bringing heavy rains, high winds and record-breaking storm surges along the coast.
This storm should be taken very seriously, even by those not on the coast. Sandy has the potential to be more damaging and more dangerous than last year's Hurricane Irene or October blizzard. It is never too early to start preparing.
Aging residents and individuals with disabilities and their families are strongly advised to finalize their emergency preparedness plans today in advance of Hurricane Sandy's expected landfall on Monday.
More information is available for our most vulnerable residents through the Department of Human Services.
I cannot stress how important it is that everyone to take this hurricane very seriously and utilize extreme caution over the next few days. Follow all evacuation orders immediately, but otherwise try to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary.
