SOMERVILLE, NJ – Due to severe wind, heavy rains and resulting localized flooding Somerset County has declared a State of Emergency for the duration of the storm. All non-essential travel should be curtailed, and only essential vehicles should be on the road.
For those who are already on the roads or may be required to travel, the Somerset County Office of Emergency Management cautions drivers to respect road closures and never to drive into standing water.
