A powerful coastal storm, also known as a nor'easter, is taking shape along the Atlantic coast. This storm will have prolonged impacts on New Jersey, beginning Monday evening and lasting through Wednesday.
The prediction for this weekend's nor'easter has ranged from 1-8" for our listening area...meaning we can expect empty grocery store shelves and mass panic any second now. But what do you really need to prepare for a snowstorm?
The Jersey Shore got covered in heavy snow just barely a week after Hurricane Sandy, with some places like Toms River seeing a foot of the white stuff. Naturally, the kids want to run out and play...but it's not exactly safe this time around.
Down from 2.7 million, more than 300,000 electric customers remained without power late Wednesday from Hurricane Sandy last week, but the second part of the one-two punch on New Jersey, this week's nor'easter, put a snag in the state's recovery efforts.
