Hazardous Outlook - 2:00 pm #1
The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for our area from Wednesday night through Thursday night. There is a potential for significant snowfall on Thursday from 5am to 5pm, with the most likely scenario of snow in the 2 to 4 inch range, but possibly as much as 7 inches. The Marlboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM) as well as my office will continue to monitor the forecast.
We remind you that the OEM has SUSPENDED ALL CURBSIDE BRUSH PICKUP. There should be no brush or other lawn debris curbside until further notice. For details, please see the letter from Acting OEM Director Lt. Cherbini HERE.
Please take the time in advance of the storm to prepare. It bears repeating that having multiple lines of communication between the township and our residents is important. If you have not done so already, please visit our “Communications for Residents” section on the Township Website www.marlboro-nj.gov/resident-communications and sign up for any or all of the communication options available. Please register your home and cell phones for Police reverse 9-1-1 calls and text message updates. Sign up for Township email blasts and find us on FACEBOOK and Twitter @MarlboroTwp as well as my Facebook page.
The “Surviving the Snow” brochure in the center of the Recycling Calendar mailed to your home and on line HERE affords easy access to emergency phone numbers and websites. Check the Township website Storm Updates http://www.marlboro-nj.gov/storm/Storm_updates.html for past preparedness information.
We remind you that power outages should be reported directly to JCP&L using one of their many methods available. You may call JCP&L at 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report your outage, click here to report your outage online or here for text messaging. Outage information is also available on JCP&L’s 24/7 Power Center Maps and on the JCP&L Facebook page. Please immediately report downed wires to JCP&L or the Marlboro Division of Police. Never go near a downed power line, even if you think it is no longer carrying electricity.
As always, the Marlboro Police Department is available 24 hours a day at (732) 536-0100. For emergencies, please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1. We will continue to update the public through email, reverse 9-1-1 and social media, as necessary. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.
