Many roads were still closed in the Princeton region on Tuesday night due to debris, tree limbs or wires blocking the roads. In many areas, traffic lights on main roads are also still out of service.

Police in many towns are asking residents to drive only if it is essential. Do not remove or circumvent barricades or cones on roadways, or try to remove tree limbs or wires from roads. Do not try to drive under wires hanging down across roads. Stay home for your safety if you can.
