A nor'easter walloped East Windsor early Thursday as cars hit gridlock on area roads, local schools were closed and over 7 inches fell on Ewing.

Downed wires were reported in Central Jersey as salt was spread on the New Jersey Turnpike and Routes 1 and 18. There were only a small amount of power outages reported by mid-day.

Road crews were plowing and salting and a speed restriction on the New Jersey Turnpike was in place in both directions from the Delaware Memorial Bridge in Pennsville Township to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, at 35 miles per hour.

Motorists should anticipate delays and use caution due to current roadway conditions.

People are also reminded to curtail driving and to also have their vehicles removed from the streets. All on-street parking is prohibited at this time and vehicles parked on public roadways are subject to being towed. 

This storm is going to continue through the day and well into tonight. We have crews working round the clock to try to keep up with the storm. Because of the amount of snow and the constantly changing weather mixing with the snow is sleet, freezing rain and rain it slows the efforts down. 

As of this time we have no reported power outages. However, if you experience an outage at your residence you are asked to contact PSE&G directly at 1-800-436-PSEG (7734).
