Governor Chris Christie has issued a state of emergency for all 21 New Jersey counties, Save Jerseyans, as winter storm “Hercules” prepares to bring blizzard-like conditions to portions of our region.
“The impending weather conditions over the next several days will produce a variety of dangerous travel conditions throughout the state,” said Governor Christie in an official Thursday afternoon press release. “I’ve authorized state officials to take all necessary action in advance of the storm, and my Administration will continue monitoring conditions throughout the remainder of the storm. I encourage all New Jerseyans to stay off the roads if possible so that our first responders and public safety officials can safely respond to any emergency situations.”
