Nor'easter Threatens Sandy Restoration Work

The upcoming snowstorm following the Presidential election may hamper Sandy recovery efforts.

New Jerseyans go to the polls on Election Day as a nor'easter threatens recovery efforts in the wake of Sandy.

The state has contingency plans in place so voters displaced by the storm can cast their ballots.

However, an approaching nor'easter has led to a mandatory evacuation order for low-lying waterfront homes in Brick Township.
That storm threatens to bring snow to parts of New Jersey and that could mean another cold night for 582,024 homes and businesses that still are without electricity.
Limited PATH service resumed Tuesday. And NJ Transit has modified its emergency plans to try to ease the overcrowding that slowed the return to work on Monday.
Tuesday is an even day for gasoline in the 12 counties where there is rationing.
Polls close at 8 p.m.
