New Jersey

New Jersey took a serious hit from Hurricane Sandy. We are going to start compiling resources here for people within New Jersey or people hoping to stay informed on the situation in New Jersey. We will reassess later today as to whether an outside link would work better. It is our hope that grassroots efforts like ours will start up in NJ shortly and that we can support those efforts.

FORUMS One of the things we found most helpful after Irene was having a place for people to have conversations that could be archived more clearly than on Facebook. We made this for New Jersey in case it could help a community, neighborhood or county get better organized and share information while they respond.
