By Fox 40 Staff. The Governors of New Jersey and Virginia have declared States of Emergency in advance of Hurricane Joaquin.
While we are not yet sure if Joaquin will effect New York Governor Cuomo has directed state agencies to prepare for heavy rains and tropical storm conditions. Cuomo says in Upstate New York the Department of Environmental Conservation deployed teams with the National Guard Thursday to clear sites that we know have been vulnerable in the past. The teams cleared conduits and streams that have been problematic in previous incidents.
