6:03 pm
northeasterly winds winds will push the water into western long island sound and also against the jersey shore in the south shore of long island and that's why we have a coastal flood warning in effect for the county shaded in red and i'll talk more about what's expected in humans. antwan: ivory thank you. christina: two-day snowstorm is creating massive problems across the area. >> joining us is governor chris christie with the latest on how new jersey is dealing with this darn. we know you have been very busy governor. >> is my pleasure. thanks for having me on. antwan: a lot of people are wondering about the decision not to enforce a travel ban in your state. can you tell us about that? >> i've been on the road all day today and there just does not need to be a need for us to do it. people have been respectful of our request to stay off the roads. i was on the garden state parkway, interstate 287 and on all those roads i can tell you that most of the time other than
6:04 pm
road. christina: governor christie's this is your 17th snow emergency figure out the experience. a lot of people still recovering from superstorm sandy. people tweeting pictures of icy water coming to their homes. >> that's why went to the jersey shore today. our staff has been in touch with the south jersey shore and cape me which is where we must -- have most of flooding. no way does the flooding approximate what happened during superstorm sandy. we have this mostly street flooding very little going into homes and very little that is requiring any type of evacuation so we feel like for most people you should just be sheltered where you are while you still have power and those things will
6:05 pm
after tonight high-tech with the national weather service sang the high tide will be less aggressive so that's good news for residents along the shore. antwan: governor can you talk about the planets might likely be visiting areas after the tide which we know is around 7:00 and 55 minutes or so? >> i don't think any more is expected. i don't expect anyone to be out of the house so during the day i could go around and see conditions and want to get start out as difficult to do that. we have 3800 pieces of equipment on the road clearing the roadways. i can tell you the garden state parkway was very clear and passable. for the most part state highways are really right now in the northern part of the state you are viewing areas the one that's getting hit the hardest. the worst of the storm has argued past south jersey and a
6:06 pm
the northern part is they got hit hard and that's why governor cuomo made the decision to close down the hudson river parkway. new york city making it difficult for them to clear the roadways and we wanted to continue to help the people in new jersey and urging them not to be in a row. there's more snow to come for the better part of new jersey. christie governor christie's not only are you overseeing new jersey but also a gop residence candidate and we need your hard at work on the campaign trail. can we ask what your plans are for this weekend? >> we will take a look and see help rings look tomorrow morning. right now my intent is to stay new jersey ncl things go but if things go well tomorrow i will try to get back to new hampshire sometime tomorrow. we'll have to wait and see. i want to make it clear that from my perspective by 11:00 yesterday morning it was clear to me that this was going to be a significant snow event
6:07 pm
it wrong. i left early yesterday afternoon from new hampshire drove down here to new jersey and i was here before snow dropped on to the ground and we have been monitoring it personally. today was out on the road all day from early this morning. it appears to me we have about 18 inches of snow on the ground. antwan: governor thank you so much for joining us. we know you've been very busy and we wish you traveling well tomorrow the careful as you make your way to new hampshire. thank you so much for joining us by phone this evening. >> thank you and i said all the people in new jersey please stay home tonight. there is no reason for you to leave their homes tonight. it's cold and it's dark and there's a lot of snow on the dark so -- on the grounds that stay home and stay safe. christina: governor christie was telling his flooding is a major concern.
6:08 pm
with more. report grants one a christie make her the governor manchin point pleasant one of the areas he visited. we update mass upon county north of that and let that's their babies in the area where earlier this morning just after 7:00 the high tide we started to see some street leading, some of the flooding the governor talked about the didn't cause damage with something officials are keeping there i am this evening. the last few hours some of that water has started to move back into some street and causing minor flooding. the area was under a voluntary evacuation order. we know there were dozens if not hundreds of residents have decided to leave their homes. one woman i spoke to earlier this afternoon told me this morning the water was at her doorstep in this evening she thinks it's possible it could make its way into her living room come into her home. certainly an unwanted guest. the governor urged people to stay off the roadways tonight and for good reason. new jersey state patrol is
6:09 pm
accidents come in vehicle accidents on the state roadways up the evening. they have also helped some 800 people across the state this evening. it's a big concern and also this evening you want to keep your eye on those wind gust. the coaster reasons -- regions we could see wind gust as high as 74 miles per hour. that's what the national weather service said earlier and if that happens it would qualify as hurricane-strength winds. hurricane-strength winds that could be associated with this blizzard. here in monmouth county that the concern was always going to be the flooding. it was nice going to be the wild card but we saw more snow than what we expected here. about a foot or a little more than a foot, 13 or 14 inches. that's one big thing people are dealing with today. take a listen as we talked a gentleman shoveling its way out. >> a lot of times we have high winds that we had overnight but it looks like it's still pretty strong and i think hopefully we
6:10 pm
reporter: what it might be expected to become astronomical high tides around 7:00 not to mention the high tide that will come back again tomorrow morning so we are set by not out of the woods yet. antwan and christina back to you. apologize. christina: i get it. the snow freezes your face. reporter: i blame it on that today was doing so well. antwan: you are doing fine into the city is doing his best to deal this time. christina: here's what he had to say. >> a travel ban is in effect and the nypd will and forced a travel ban it's important to people clear the roads so sanitation can do its work and get the city back on its feet over the next day or two. antwan: let's go live to prospect heights to robert. her parka and tony christie and i can't feel my face but i love it. that's what i'm thinking tonight
6:11 pm
to my face to the travel ban as you heard the mayor say remains in effect and we have visual proof of that. you can count the number of cars here at what would normally is a very busy intersection flat push an atlantic. you can count the number of vehicles on one hand and that's good news because the nypd is beginning to really enforce this travel ban. earlier. when i first started at 2:30 i saw some officer stopping vehicles and giving a warning to those drivers. you have to get off the road but now it's serious and you could risk a summons or perhaps even an arrest. i knew this day would be a long and cold one when we set out this morning for the upper eastside and then we took to fdr drive. this normally would be an 8.3-mile drive from our studios on 67th street to atlantic terminal. it took us about an hour to do it and i was driving on the fdr. we didn't get get much above 10 miles an hour.
6:12 pm
and my photographer shot these images. we saw cars spinning all over the place, a telecheck had to come out and rescue one of them. it was not good and the that they simply deteriorated from there. as the day wore on the governor opted for that travel ban at 2:30 and then at 4:00 the lirr metro north were shut down. what normally would be a very busy bustling terminal was a ghost town. we were inside the lirr departure boards were all black and no information whatsoever. the entry for the b in the q subway line was completely roped off. another casualty of the storm new york islander in philadelphia flyer game normally right now fans will be filing into the barclays center but what we were there earlier today the only sign of humanity we saw was a guy who was shoveling the snow.
6:13 pm
of her glee center but as we come back live i want you to see the police officer down here trying to shovel out his squad car. antwan and christina sending it back to you. christina: we could go out there and help him. antwan: thanks so much. feeling the effects of today's boozer. christina: jody goldberg is live in america but the conditions there. reporter: i can't feel my face, the winds are kicking up in long beach. you can see at this point it's hard to tell what's falling from the sky and what's being blown around to be content to wait for the high tide expected around 7:15 but at this point city officials we spoke with say it's not expected to be that bad. that's the wild card here tonight but i will know more later. one resident we spoke with said it can't be compared to sandy. >> i think we are all right. the wind blowing from the north helps us blowing against the
6:14 pm
i was just down there and they built up some sand dunes so hopefully we are good. i don't think this is anything like sandy. it's a winter storm and sandy was hopefully once-in-a-lifetime. reporter: just a reminder there still that travel ban in effect. it's best to stay off the road so that the crews can keep them safe. in long beach jody goldberg sending a back to you. christina: still a lot more to come. antwan: before he had to break i want to show you this scene from long beach long island. as you can see the flags standing proud old glory holding its ground.

6:55 pm
that will bring heavy snow bans picking through north-central new jersey to new york city and long island. that's not the only thing we are concerned with here. winds are picking up and it's been plastered all day long. very significant wind gust towards long island and that will be problematic as we go into the evening. let's talk temperatures. we are in the 20s across the area below the freezing mark and the winds are out of the north nor ceased -- northeast at 15 to 20 miles per hour on average. they have been sustained throughout the day up to 30 miles per hour. winds andough go with the winds and the gusts- it's been a rough go with the winds and the gusts as high as 50 or 60 miles per hour especially across long island. factor in the current wins with the current temperatures and we have windchills in the teens and outside. a look at our futurecast shows by 11:00 tonight still snowing especially on the coast of connecticut all of long island in the jersey shore. we fate -- we see things winding down across northwest jersey and the hudson valley by that hour.

warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. p you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. ri couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. r like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto r without talking to your doctor, as this may r increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. r while taking, you may bruise more easily and r it may take longer for bleeding to stop. p xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. p xarelto can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. r get help right away for unexpected bleeding, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while , watch for back pain or any nerve r or muscle related signs or symptoms. if you have an artificial t heart valve or abnormal bleeding. r all planned medical p tell your doctor about r bleeding problems. xarelto is the number onerprescribed blood thinner well that calls for ar round of kevin nealons. arnold palmer. with xarelto regular blood monitoring r restrictions.
