The declaration calls for all vehicles other than essential emergency vehicles to be off the roads by 5:30 p.m. tonight.
Additionally, all residential vehicles must be pulled into driveways or onto private property away from the shoulder of residential streets. Any vehicles not moved off the street will be subject to towing at the owner's expense, according to a release from the town. Abandoned vehicles that are obstructing plows and emergency vehicles may also be removed by the town.
According to the statement, road conditions are expected to be extremely hazardous throughout this evening and tomorrow morning, as snow fall expects to accumulate between 8 and 14 inches. Town snow removal crews will be working throughout the night to clear the roads until all are safe and passable.
The town has urged residents to call (631) 451-TOWN to report snow-related issues; 911 for police and fire emergencies. To report power outages or downed lines, call PSEG at (800) 436-7734, or visit http://www.psegliny.com to make an online report.
