Storm Update: Norcross on Disaster Response for South Jersey Flooding
WASHINGTON, DC – Following a request from U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01), Governor Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency for Camden, Gloucester and Burlington Counties. A severe storm is still ripping through South Jersey and roads are flooded and closed, PATCO service was suspended and cars have been overturned.
“I thank Governor Murphy for working with me to ensure relief is provided for the thousands of South Jerseyans dealing with severe rain and flooding,” said Congressman Norcross. “I have been in constant contact with all three county administrators and spoke with the Delaware River Port Authority about PATCO service, which partially resumed at noon today. Additionally, with more rain on the way, I’ve been coordinating efforts with Reps. Andy Kim and Jeff Van Drew and all of our area mayors to ensure we’re best serving South Jersey’s families, homeowners, commuters and first responders.”
