Christie Administration Monitoring Tropical Storm Andrea

NJ Office of Emergency Management Activates State Emergency Operations Center to Closely Watch Conditions that May Impact the Garden State Friday and Into the Weekend

West Trenton, N.J. The NJ Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) is monitoring Tropical Storm Andrea, which is expected to impact the state today and into the weekend, bringing with it heavy rain, high winds in some areas, and potential flooding. The State Emergency Operations Center was activated at 7:00 a.m. this morning.

"We face changing conditions over the next couple of days," said Colonel Rick Fuentes, State Police Superintendent and Director of the NJ Office of Emergency Management. "We are closely monitoring the situation with our partners from the National Weather Service and the County Offices of Emergency Management. Be especially careful if you are on the road. We also remind drivers not to drive through ponded or standing water, on roads impacted by heavy rain. Those who live in river communities should be aware of the potential for flooding, and follow instructions if given by local emergency officials."

The NJOEM offers a number of ways to maintain situational awareness about severe weather events. Visit the
NJOEM website for an extensive list of resources for obtaining information about emergencies: http://www.ready.nj.gov/plan/staying_informed.html

New Jersey residents should also stay connected with their county OEMs via social media and county emergency alerting systems. Links to County OEM social media pages and alert systems can be found at: http://www.ready.nj.gov/about/association.html
