Governor Chris Christie announces federal emergency declaration for New Jersey

TRENTON, N.J. - Federal aid is available to the state of New Jersey to supplement state and local emergency response efforts resulting from Hurricane Sandy.

Governor Chris Christie announced Monday that N.J. will receive the money as part of a federal emergency declaration for the state.

On Sunday, Christie formally asked President Obama to declare a pre-landfall emergency for New Jersey. This declaration allows the state to request funding and other assistance for actions taken in advance of Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to make landfall in New Jersey late Monday evening.

"This assistance will enhance the state's capability to respond quickly and put assets into place where they are needed to help New Jersey residents impacted by Hurricane Sandy," said Christie.
