KENILWORTH, NJ - Governor Phil Murphy has declared a State of Emergency for New Jersey beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday's anticipated nor’easter, authorizing the State Director of Emergency Management to activate and coordinate response and recovery efforts. Executive Order No. 17 declares the state emergency across all 21 counties in the state, and allows for the extension of resources into other parts of the state as the storm continues to impact New Jersey.

The impending storm is expected to produce heavy snow accumulations, with rates as high as two to three inches per hour, and strong winds with gusts as high as 45 mph beginning Tuesday evening and lasting until Wednesday evening.

In preparation for the winter storm, the New Jersey State Police has activated the State Emergency Operations Center for round-the-clock operations. This activation pulls together multiple departments to ensure the situation is constantly being monitored and assessed from critical angles.

The Governor has ordered State offices closed tomorrow, March 21, 2018, due to the storm. Non-essential employees should not report for their normal day shift tomorrow. Essential employees should report to work on schedule.

The Governor encourages New Jerseyans to utilize this additional information to stay informed:
