WARREN, NJ - The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for most of the area until 5 p.m. today. A watch means that conditions are favorable for a tornado to develop. If  the watch turns into a warning, prepare to take precautions. In the case of a tornado warning, if you are in a home or building  move to a basement. If a basement is not available, move to an interior room or hallway on the lowest floor and get under a sturdy piece of furniture. Stay away from windows. If caught outside or in a vehicle, lie flat in a nearby ditch or depression.

Be advised, Both Boys' and Girls' soccer games have been canceled at Warren Middle School and the after school basketball club is also canceled. Watchung Hills Regional High School has canceled all after school activities in anticipation of the storm today.
