Thousands dig out after nor'easter slams NJ

CRANFORD - Halloween in New Jersey is posing some very real threats days after a fall storm dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of the state.

Trick-or-treaters face the prospect of dodging fallen trees and downed power lines that have left thousands without electricity. It may be days before utility crews restore service.

Residents in Cranford were dealing with downed trees, power outages and road closures across town in the wake of the nor'easter storm.

Dozens of schools are closed in central and northern New Jersey today. Many municipalities are also discouraging nighttime trick-or-treating due to the continuing hazards on roadways.
