New Jersey Digs Out From Another Wintry Storm
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – New Jerseyans are digging out after another major snowstorm swept the state.
Some 1,900 plows and salt spreaders continue clearing highways. Their work was made tougher by vehicles that became stuck on entrance and exit ramps. The National Weather Service says there’s more than 18 inches in Branchburg Park, 17 inches in Princeton, 14 inches in Morristown, more than 13 inches in Holmdel and nearly 11 inches in Brick Township.
Children stayed home because most schools are closed. Gov. Chris Christie ordered state government offices to open at noon Thursday. By midday, NJ Transit bus service has been restored except some local routes in Newark. Trains were running with delays of 10 to 15 minutes.
Flights resumed at Newark airport at 10 a.m. Some 8,000 customers don’t have electricity.
