CLARK, NJ – The latest forecast calls for snow accumulations of 20 to 24 inches, according to a blizzard warning issued by the National Weather Service at 10:51 am on Saturday. Blizzard conditions will continue through Sunday morning, with heavy snow, damaging winds, and “near zero” visibilities the report said.
While all is quiet in Clark, Mayor Sal Bonaccorso said the roads are bad and it’s slow-going for the plows.
“We’re trying to make one pass down every street and then go back and chip away at it,” Bonaccorso said. “Trucks are getting stuck, but we’ll keep working until all the streets are open.”
He asked residents to stay off the streets as much as possible.
The National Weather Service warned that strong winds may down power lines and tree limbs, and that secondary and tertiary roadways might become impassable.
A recent update by Union County also urged residents to stay off roads and be cautious in removing snow. Issues on county roads should be reported to the county police at 908-654-9800,while municipalities should be contacted for local road issues.
