2020 Nor’easter: Jersey City prepares for December nor'easter

News 12 New Jersey’s Marci Rubin was out in Jersey City Wednesday afternoon where local leaders were preparing for the nor'easter.
The storm was expected to produce 6-10 inches of snow by Thursday morning in Hudson County.
By 4 p.m., the winds started to pick up and snow was starting to fall in the area. This is the first significant snowstorm New Jersey has seen since January 2018.
“This is going to be our first time doing this on this scale in close to two years. Last winter was a very light winter. I think we’re situated in a good place,” Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop said. “We have close to 75 pieces of equipment that are actively working or ready to engage and we have 6500 tons of rock salt ready to deploy…we think we are in a good situation in that front. We are asking for cooperation from the public.”
Hudson County officials are asking that residents say off the roadways as much as possible to allow crews to go out to clear the snow.
Residents were also asked to move their cars if they are parked along the snow emergency routes.
Gov. Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for New Jersey Wednesday afternoon ahead of the storm.
