Ramapo Reacts to Winter Storm Nemo

Winter storm Nemo moved in and out of the tri-state area Friday into early Saturday, but the blizzard left the North Jersey area largely unharmed. 

The Record reported that Nemo deposited about a foot of snow on most of Bergen County, which (compared to areas in New England that saw as much as 3 feet of snow fall and heavy winds) was relatively mild.

Snow started to fall in the early morning on Friday, and by 5:40 a.m. all afternoon classes were canceled by the College. Later, at 11:40 a.m., the College canceled classes an activities for Saturday due to the storm.

The blizzard continued until well into the night, but by Saturday the snowfall had stopped and the area's major roads were cleared and safe.

Dining Services was able to return to normal hours on Saturday, but the College's closure and cancelation of activities was still in effect.

The National Weather Service first posted a winter storm warning for the New York City area at 4 p.m. on Thursday. The alert was in effect from 6 a.m. Friday to 1 p.m. Saturday.
