New Jersey and New York issue states of emergency ahead of nor'easter

The governors of New Jersey and New York have each issued a state of emergency in advance of an anticipated nor'easter this week.

In New York, Gov. Kathy Hochul declared the emergency for more than 20 counties.
"I am proactively declaring a State of Emergency to ensure we can provide the necessary resources to respond to this storm and protect lives and property in regions where the forecast is calling for significant rainfall," Hochul said in a news release. "I am encouraging New Yorkers to prepare now for inclement weather expected over the coming days and urging commuters to take precaution ahead of heavy rainfall expected tomorrow morning."

Hochul directed various state agencies earlier Monday to prepare assets for deployment to impacted regions.
