Westfield Police Chief: 'Dangers Are Still Present; Stay at Home'

Union County restricts vehicular traffic until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Union County has issued a state of emergency restricting vehicular traffic until 6 p.m. this evening, according to Westfield Police Chief David Wayman.

Wayman said unfortunately people are not abiding by this order which is resulting in slower recovery efforts. 

"Dangers are still present as the police and fire departments are still assessing all of the telephone poles and power lines that are down," Wayman said. "Unfortunately, people are not only putting themselves in harms way but also the safety of the police and fire personnel."

Everyone should remain at home until at least the State of Emergency has been lifted, he added.

Rahway Ave is closed before Dorian, most side roads are closed on the South Side due to downed trees, Summit and Boulevard still blocked by Jefferson, Central Ave still blocked at Marlboro St and Ayliffe. Really not worth going out there!
