Township, Borough Under State of Emergency

Both Newtown Township and Newtown Borough are under a "State of Emergency" due to Hurricane Sandy.

Newtown Borough and Newtown Township are both under a State of Emergency due to Hurricane Sandy. Wrightstown and Upper Makefield are also under a State of Emergency.

That means all non-essential traffic is requested to stay off the roadways.

Newtown Borough posted the announcement on its website Monday. See the PDF attached to this article to read the full declaration.

Newtown Township Board of Supervisors Chairman Mike Gallagher said Monday morning he had just signed the declaration. He said while the township can't close the roads, people should stay off them if possible in the interest of safety.
