Today’s rain-snow squall stands to produce markedly different effects in Jackson than on Ocean County’s coastline. Police, public works and emergency administrators activate guidelines for homeowners.

Officials are concerned of possible snow buildups of five inches or more, perhaps with occasional blizzard-like conditions before it tapers off tonight. Coastal spots are not even included in the National Weather Service winter storm warning.

Therefore, they’re urging residents to stay indoors if at all possible, and to keep emergency kits stocked with items such as extra water, blankets, flashlights,fresh batteries, medical supplies and food to offset any resulting power outages.

Cars, trucks and portable sports equipment should be removed from curbsides to leave clear paths for plows and sanders, says Mayor Mike Reina.

He’s reminding folks not to call 911 except in actual emergency situations and to heed instructions by first responders.

Tonight’s scheduled “Meet The Mayor” session in the Municipal Building is nixed. The next is scheduled April 29.

Handy phone numbers for the duration: Jackson Public Works,732-928-1200, extension 1250; Jackson Emergency Management, 732-928-9414; and for power problems, JCP&L’s report line,1-888-544-4877.
