Newark New Jersey City Hall Press Conference

NEWARK, N.J. (WUNF) — At City Hall in Newark, Mayor Ras J. Baraka and other officials held a press conference to address the Winter Storm.

Officials said that adequate police, fire, EMS and others will be under one roof in the OEM Center in the South Ward.

Authorities are reminding residents to let them know if they need assistance during the winter event.

The Mayor and others wanted to let the residents know that they should not park in the streets and to park in a driveway, gas station or somewhere other than a street. Also, residents were reminded not to shovel snow in streets.

Officials said that they were prepared for the Monday Morning rush hour.

The Council Director said that salting and treating of major arteries throughout the City is already underway. If residents want to see where the trucks are plowing, you can do so at

Some of the important streets to keep clear according to officials are Bergen Street, Nye Avenue, Chancellor Avenue, Ferry Street, Lafayette Street, Wilson Avenue and Rome Street.

UNF News Reporter Kyle Mazza asked Dr. Of Public Health Hanna Hamdi, “if homeless people are out on the streets and need help but do not know what to do, what will  the outreach be?” Hamdi responded and said “The outreach will be to try and get the homeless into shelters but unfortunately we cannot force people to go into shelters.” Hamdi also added that she expects 80 – 90 people per night to come in to the warming center. That is for 3 days which include Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Mayor Ras J. Baraka said that no state of emergency has been issued but he says that if one does happen the public will be notified.
