NEW YORK, NY (CBS) — New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s inaugural celebration at Ellis Island has been canceled due to the inclement weather.

The Inaugural Committee released a statement that reads in part:

“While we regret to cancel this special evening for our guests, their safety is our first priority and takes total precedence in our planning. We thank all of our supporters for their generosity and urge New Jerseyans to stay safe in today’s conditions and heed the guidance of emergency management officials.”

The Governor and Lt. Governor’s swearing in ceremony at 11:30 a.m. at the Trenton War Memorial remains unchanged.
