Emergency declared for New Jersey coast

Emergency Management Alert, November 17, 2009

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine declared a state of emergency for Cumberland County due to last week's nor'easter, reports TheDailyJournal.com.

South Jersey received persistent rain and strong winds over three tide cycles, flooding roadways and causing power outages throughout the state. The emergency declaration will likely allow the state to receive federal money to help pay for repairs. Barrier islands off the coast were hit especially hard.
