My brother lives in New Jersey. I contacted him to see if the recent storm had any effect on him. It didn’t. He pointed out that state officials delivered the high standard of public safety they have come to expect.
In his area, residents received two warning notices back to back.
The first was a flash flood advisory warning people to seek higher ground or lacking that to move to the upper level of buildings to avoid flood waters. Meanwhile the national weather service issued a tornado warning urging people to immediately seek shelter in the basement.
The government always ready with helpful advice.
