State of Emergency Declared For Paterson

Mayor Jeffery Jones and Council President Anthony Davis declared a state of emergency for Paterson. On a channel 77 announcement which is only available on Cablevision and is also uploaded onto Youtube, the mayor said, “the winds, rains, and potential floodings are a grave concern,” stressing similar points as governor Governor Chris Christie.

Mr Davis urged all residents to stay indoors, “we need not have anyone out there if we have high winds,” and wanted residents to listen for updates on the city’s website, social networks, or the public access channel where announcement are promulgated.
