Acting NJ Gov. Stephen Sweeney has asked Gov. Christie’s administration to prepare for applications the with Federal Emergency Management Agency.


    After the state was hit with three feet of snow in some places, the high blizzards winds caused even more damage, which some municipalities can’t afford to repair, reports.

    Sweeney has asked the administration to determine which counties were hit hardest, and will subsequently apply for aid through FEMA.

    Sweeney is the Senate President.
