NEPTUNE - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) held a news conference today in Neptune to discuss flooding in New Jersey and the recovery following Hurricane Irene.
The governor spoke from what is planned to be the statewide command center for FEMA in New Jersey. Officials are hoping to open the center by tomorrow morning.
From the command center, FEMA workers will communicate with emergency workers and various departments within state government. The governor is still encouraging folks who have storm damage to sign up. He says FEMA has cut the wait time for inspections down to just three days.
