An Ice Storm Warning is in effect from 6 PM Today until 10 PM Tomorrow for our area. A wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain may result in significant ice accumulations. Ice will create slippery spots on roads, bridges, ramps, overpasses, sidewalks, and untreated surfaces. Ice may damage trees and power lines, possibly resulting in power outages. Harding Township OEM team is closely monitoring.

The State of Emergency continues, with over 24" of snow already on the ground, we are currently forecasted for up to an additional 10" of snow with the winter storm continuing through the afternoon tomorrow. The Harding Township Department of Public Works has been out plowing, but with snow falling at up to 3" per hour, it's impossible to keep up. Most residents have not tried to travel, which has helped the DPW tremendously. We all thank you! Everyone is urged to continue to stay home until well after the snow stops tomorrow afternoon. Once it stops snowing, the DPW will still need time to get the roads safe for travel.
Harding Township Police, New Vernon Fire Department, New Vernon First Aid Squad, DPW, and Office of Emergency Management continue to work around the clock to keep our residents safe!
