That number is expected to climb to as much as 20 inches of snow by the time the storm ends, according to police.

Police said they have handled more then a dozen motor vehicle accidents and motorists assist since the storm started last night.

There should be no travel today, police said.

Township, county, and state plow crews are working to clear the snow from the roadways, but are having difficulty with the increased rate of snow falling, police said.

In Cranbury, Chief of Police Ricky Varga put out the following statement on how that community is handling the storm.

"The brunt of the storm is currently passing through our area. Road crews are struggling to keep up with the storm and working feverishly to maintain lanes of passage on primary roadways for emergency vehicles and essential personnel. Severe drifting associated with blinding white out conditions are making driving extremely dangerous," the statement said. "Police patrols are reporting numerous stranded vehicles, many of which are 4x4's. These stranded vehicles are delaying the efforts of road crews. A state of emergency has been declared and travel ban is being enforced. We are asking our residents to remain off the roadways until such time as travel is deemed safe."

The statement also said there were no power outages as of yet in Cranbury.

Residents are asked to report any power outages or non emergency storm related issues to the Cranbury Police Communications non emergency number (609) 395-0031.

As always for emergencies dial 911.

"We will continue to update our residents as needed," Varga said.
