New Jersey prepares for first snow of the season
Preparations for the first snow of the season began early in New Jersey.
The Department of Transportation says crews have been laying down brine on the roads statewide for the past two days.
The Port Authority says they have staff analyzing weather reports and are ready to deploy staff and equipment when necessary.
The airport also has melters that can liquefy up to 500 tons of snow an hour.
Local officials are confident that they are prepared for the storm.
"I think we'll get through," says Tom Curcio, Director of Ocean County Roads Department. "We'll have black roads right away."
Crews in Ocean County returned to the roads at 5 a.m. Saturday.
