Weather Alert From the Morris County Office of Emergency Management
We continue to monitor what appears to be a “quick hitting storm” that is on track to impact Morris County. The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a “Winter Storm Warning” from midnight tonight until 4 pm Thursday. The snow is expected to move into our area overnight tonight, generally developing between 11 pm this evening and 1 am tomorrow (Thursday) morning. The data suggests that the snow will intensify by 4-5 am, with moderate to occasionally heavy snow then likely to continue through about noon. The heavy snow may make many roads potentially impassable for several hours during the worst part of the storm. We also may experience power outages due to the weight of the snow on tree limbs and power lines. Lingering lighter snow may continue into the afternoon hours, before finally tapering off by 4-5pm. Total accumulations of 6-11 inches are forecasted at this time. We anticipate rapid accumulations on all surfaces and a significant impact to the morning rush hour.
Note: The Netcong Municipal Building will be opening tomorrow at 12 Noon, weather depending.
Due to a declining market and shrinking number of vendors willing to work with e-waste, the Borough of Netcong recycling center will no longer be accepting electronic waste. This will include televisions and computers. If you have any of these items that need to be properly disposed of, you will need to call and make an appointment with The Morris County MUA and deliver the items to their facility in Mt. Olive. Appointments are available Tuesdays and Fridays and most Saturdays. There is no charge for Morris county residents. The phone number to make an appointment is (973) 631-5109 Monday thru Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
