2020 Nor'easter: Gov. Murphy declares state of emergency; urges all NJ residents to stay off the roads

Gov. Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency for New Jersey ahead of a major snowstorm impacting the state.
The governor urged all New Jersey residents to stay off the roads, stay at home, and stay safe.
"Because people are currently still working from home and so many students are remote learning, we do not anticipate the setting after school at rush hour issues that we would otherwise see from a storm,” Murphy said. “With this timing coming in as it is, mostly going to do throughout the afternoon and into the evening rush, we hope this will allow deities cruise to tend to their duties without any issues, but if you are on the road after the storm conditions have begun, we urged the police take it slow and use common sense of caution.”
State offices closed at 1 p.m.
