Gov. Christie declares State of Emergency

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie has declared a State of Emergency in New Jersey ahead of a snow and ice storm.

Christie made the announcement Tuesday night in anticipation of hazardous conditions around the state.

Christie has also authorized the closing of state offices on Wednesday for all non-essential employees. County and municipal crews have been called in for storm preparations.

The National Weather Service says northern parts of the state will get ice and a few inches of snow on Wednesday. Central areas will see a wintry mix and southern areas will mostly get rain.

It’s the second storm to hit New Jersey this week. Many areas are still digging out from a storm that dumped more than 9 inches of snow on Monday.
