Storm Update from the Morris County Office of Emergency Management


MORRISTOWN, NJ - The following statement is from Jeffrey Paul, Director of the Morris County Office of Emergency Management regarding the coming storm Hermine:

"The Morris County Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor the storm with our partners. The greatest impacts from Hermine will remain to the south/east of Morris County through Monday and Tuesday. Dry weather is expected today and tonight. Showers may arrive by later Sunday evening with perhaps more frequent showers on Monday and Monday night. Rainfall amounts will not be excessive. With the current forecast track, Morris County will be on the outer edge of this system, keeping rainfall amounts generally in the 0.25-0.50" range between Sunday night and Tuesday. If this system takes a slightly more westward track, amounts could be higher. Winds will be from the northeast at 10-20 mph today, increasing to 15-25 mph on Sunday and Monday. Gusts on Sunday and Monday may reach 35-40 mph but confidence is low at this point. Once Hermine gets east of NJ on Sunday, it will tend to drift around for a couple of days. If the storm drifts far enough to the west/north, our impacts will worsen with heavier rain and stronger wind gusts. Even so, we will still miss the worst of it."
