NJ Gov. Chris Christie was on the Today Show this morning as Irene was working its way up the Jersey Shore - he urged people to stay inside through the morning.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker tweeted one of the many reasons why @corybooker: Alert: High water can hide live wires. Please stay inside & allow emergency teams to continue to address all dangers.
Gov. Christie is going to give an update at 12:00 as NJ starts cleanup efforts
