Christie Likely To Declare State Of Emergency

A person in Chris Christie’s administration says the governor will declare a state of emergency for New Jersey on Saturday, ahead of Hurricane Sandy’s expected arrival.

Governor Chris Christie and Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno meet with Office of Emergency Management, cabinet members and senior staff in preparation of Hurricane Sandy at the Regional Operations Intelligence Center (ROIC) in West Trenton,

The governor, who returned Friday night from campaigning in North Carolina, is scheduled to hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Saturday. The person was not authorized to comment ahead of the news conference and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

The state’s office of emergency management has been activated and voluntary evacuations have started from South Jersey’s barrier islands.

Christie was criticized for vacationing in Florida with his family while a snowstorm pummeled the state in 2010. But he gained fame the following year for telling New Jerseyans to “Get the hell off the beach” as Hurricane Irene approached.
