Atlantic City Mayor: Residents, Stay Home Until Storm Subsides

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

The harsh blizzard has slammed Atlantic City hard and officials with the police department warned drivers to stay off the roads.

Snow plows could not plow enough to keep the snowfall from quickly re-covering the roads.

On Thursday, January 4th, newly elected Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam braved the cold to deliver one message to residents throughout the city.

"The conditions out here are very dangerous," said Gilliam, "but again I employ that my citizens stay home until the storm subsides and hopefully we'll continue to have the road workers continue to work on the roads. Hopefully after the storm they can basically get out and do what they need to do."

As a result of the snow and hazardous road conditions, all schools in Atlantic City have been closed for Friday, January 5th.
