Christie to New Jerseyans: Stay home if you can today

(AP) - Gov. Chris Christie is advising New Jerseyans who don't have to be at work on Monday not to go.

At his Sunday evening briefing on Hurricane Irene, Christie warned that it will be very difficult to get around the state on Monday because the storm has flooded so many roads, large and small.

It's also idled NJ Transit trains. The Atlantic City line is the only one that will be running Monday. Commuters to New York will have to rely on buses, their cars or the PATH system.

State government offices will be open. Christie said it's important that government agencies be working to deal with issues arising from the storm.

Gov. Christie will hold a briefing on flood conditions at 4:15 p.m. News 12 New Jersey will carry the briefing live on-air and on-line at News12.com.
