EWING – Hurricane Sandy may have delivered a devastating blow to New Jersey, but she won’t take Halloween from the state.
Gov. Chris Christie signed Executive Order No. 105 today, which postpones Halloween celebrations across New Jersey until Monday.
“I’ve take this action to minimize additional risks to lives and the public safety as we begin the process of rebuilding and recovering from Hurricane Sandy,” Christie said in a statement.
“In too many communities in our state, the damage and losses from this storm are still being sorted out, and dangerous conditions abound even as our emergency management and response officials continue their work,” he said. “As governor, it is my responsibility to use all available resources of the state government to protect against the emergency created by Hurricane Sandy – postponing Halloween celebrations by five days is a commonsense and necessary step to accomplish that.”
The governor asked that local officials notify their residents and encourage their communities to delay any planned celebrations.
