Governor Chris Christie said there’s likely to be major flooding in New Jersey over the next four days.
“Right now the weather reports are not encouraging,” Christie said at a press conference in Trenton on Thursday. He said he will consider ordering evacuations if necessary.
Christie, a second-term Republican running for president, said his administration is prepared for the storm. He said he is expecting 5 to 6 inches of rainfall over the next two days.
“At this point, it’s just too soon to say whether it’s going to have a direct impact,” he said.
