EDISON - New Jersey faced the second winter storm to hit the state this week.

Gov. Chris Christie declared a state of emergency Tuesday night in anticipation of hazardous conditions around the state. Christie also authorized the closing of state offices Wednesday for all non-essential employees. 

Thousands of power outages were reported across the state due to the icing conditions.

Hundreds of schools were either closed or started late today.

Speed restrictions are in place along the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. Flooding was also reported in several spots.

Many areas are still digging out from a storm that dumped more than 9 inches of snow on Monday.
