MSP Volunteers Prepare for Nor'Easter on the Coast

Posted:

Residents in the northeast are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy's devastation and are now battling a Nor'Easter.

Troopers from Michigan State Police left for New Jersey on Sunday and are now working to prepare for even more damage.

Now a new threat: two to four inches of snow combined with 40-60 mile per hour winds. It's a potential recipe for even more destruction.

 

"This storm will likely cause power outages again, and flooding and excessive damage. I think it's just one of those things, some of the folks with the New Jersey State Police said this might be the knockout punch for people. And we have to be prepared," said First Lt. Michael Krumm, the MSP Jackson Post Commander. "FEMA has suspended all field operations for their personnel, so what we've done is partnered with the New Jersey State Police, and will assist them in any other missions they have. And right now our troopers are assisting with shelters across the area, working on evacuating people into new locations."
