New Stevens Institute report says northern New Jersey vulnerable to terror attack

Northern New Jersey is vulnerable to a terrorist attack according to a report released Wednesday by the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken. The report also suggests that better communication is necessary between government agencies if an attack occurs.

The stretch of land between Port Newark and Newark Liberty International Airport has been named the two most dangerous miles in America by the FBI and the new terror report confirms this. An official from the Stevens Institute believes if a double attack occurred in that area, the New Jersey emergency system could not handle it.

Officials in Union say citing where New Jersey is vulnerable is one thing, but doing something about it is another. The Union Township sheriff says his agency has not received any government money for homeland security. Democratic Congressional candidate Steve Brozack says New Jersey ranks among the lowest in the country when it comes to government funding, and he wants to see that change.

The terror report by the Stevens Institute will be presented to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
