Governor Declares State Of Emergency: Warren Schools Closed Feb.13

February 12, 2014 at 7:32 PM

WARREN,NJ - Governor Christie has declared a state of emergency in the state of New Jersey.
 
Warren Township schools will be closed on Thursday, Feb. 13. All after school activities are cancelled.
 
 
The Governor's office noted that the severe winter weather is expected to result in dangerous travel conditions for several days. Significant delays are to be expected at all three area airports.

 
A strong coastal storm system is still expected to impact the region starting Wednesday night & continuing into Thursday. Heavy snow, sleet, and coastal flooding are all threats from this storm. 10+ inches of snow are expected where the heaviest snow band sets up. Snow will start Wednesday evening. Icing due to freezing rain no longer appears to be a major threat from this event - however, heavy wet snow will cling to trees and wires. Strong winds will be an issue with this event as the storm intensifies along the coast. Gusts up to 40 mph are possible along the coast, with gusts in the 20 to 30 mph range inland from late Wednesday night through most of Thursday. This will cause added stress to power lines and tree limbs covered with heavy snow.
 
By declaring a State of Emergency, the State Director of Emergency Management is authorized to activate and coordinate the preparation, response and recovery efforts for the storm with all county and municipal emergency operations and governmental agencies.
