Christie Declares State of Emergency as Hurricane Sandy Approaches

Governor Chris Christie is currently conducting a press conference in North Middletown to prepare citizens for the approach of Hurricane Sandy the so-called “Frankenstorm.”

Of note? The Guv has officially declared a state of emergency; this release was issued immediately ahead of his presser:

As we move towards what is an increasingly likelihood of seeing Sandy make landfall in New Jersey, I am urging all New Jerseyans to take every possible and reasonable precaution to ready themselves for the storm’s potential impact. That means having an emergency action plan for their families and other loved ones who may require assistance, and avoiding unnecessary risks in the severe weather, including staying off of the roads,” said Governor Christie. “At the state level, we are taking immediate steps to prepare for the storm’s impact and ensure that state, local and county governments have the tools they need to manage and respond in a coordinated way. With this, government at every level can respond more effectively to conditions on the ground, activate emergency operations plans, and ensure that resources are being marshaled to assist and protect the public through this storm.”

We’ve posted a list of online resources, courtesy of the Administration, right here on the blog. I’ll also do my darnedest to use Save Jersey as an outlet for breaking storm information throughout this weather event (power permitting).

According to the Nation Hurricane Center, Sandy should be here sometime Monday or Tuesday; Shore areas will naturally begin to feel the effects earlier.

    decided to split this season's offerings into three distinct releases: An Autumn's Tale comprising the majority of the charms, Starry Days and Starry Nights including the pavé collection and holiday charms, or higher next may be the Valentine's Day collection. These are all listed under the fall/winter 2012 collection catalog. You will have 9 new romantic [url =]discount Pandora Lucky Charms[/url]

    to be sold during the first week of January, and a pair of gift sets called Love of My Life and Be My Valentine, arriving in shops later in January.

    Of course, hearts are heavily featured with this Valentine's Day release, with both puffy pavé hearts along with the pavé heart dangles taking center stage. Unlike the pavé lights, these sparklers are just going to be obtainable in 3 colors – black, clear, and pink. An excellent complement to those beads could be the large heart clip – which I'm intending on getting while using Love of My Life [url =]Cheap Pandora Shoe Charms[/url]

    . Lastly, the must-haves to me are the adorable turtle doves as well as the "I do" dangle.front.
