As Tuesday’s storm continues the Howell Township administration has announced that as of 3 p.m. on Tuesday the Emergency Operations Center has been activated.
Information on the township website reports that the center allows the administration to “easily communicate and respond as quickly as possible to events, the collaborative environment lets the town reallocate resources as needed.”
There is no travel ban in effect as of 4 p.m. but motorists are encouraged to stay off the roads and avoid parking on the street in violation of township ordinances during snow emergencies.
Residents with storm-related questions should call 732-414-3239. That includes reports of downed trees or power lines. Power outages should be reported to JCP&L by calling 1-888-544-4877.
