Gov. Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency before Wednesday's nor'easter arrives, according to his Twitter account.

In his tweet, Murphy said there is specifically concern for Hunterdon, Morris, Sussex and Warren counties. 

Murphy also said that the state's department of transportation is prepared to activate more than 207,000 tons of salt and 2,500 plows, spreaders and loaders.
