Governor Phil Murphy is declaring a state of emergency for New Jersey ahead of the coming storm. Murphy highlighted counties in the North-west part of the state as especially vulnerable, given the most recent Nor’easter that knocked out power for many.  The governor says most of the forecast models are in agreement that significant snow fall and dangerous winds could affect the area starting this evening into Thursday morning.  He expressed frustration that so many are still without power in parts of the state, but praised PSE&G for having over 300 boots on the ground affecting repairs.
