WEST TRENTON - Eight emergency management agencies from across New Jersey met at the Regional Operations Intelligence Center in West Trenton to discuss this weekend’s pending snowstorm.

As the storm approaches New Jersey, these agencies will work together to monitor the state’s road conditions, power outages, flooding and snow totals. 

That information will then be passed along to the governor, who will decide how each situation should best be handled.

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management will also be able to provide communities with resources the citizens may need, such as food, blankets, electricity and even vehicles.
