ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY — Early Friday morning, Nov. 2, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie lifted the evacuation order in Atlantic City, allowing the 12 casinos there to re-open (likely later this afternoon).
The boil-water advisory in place in Atlantic City as a result of Hurricane Sandy has been lifted, also, Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin said today.
“The boil-water advisory was lifted after tests of the city’s water supply came back showing no evidence of bacteria,” according to a press release from the governor’s office.
As of noon time, the roads to Atlantic City have been opened (!!!), and cars are jammed up on the A.C. Expressway with folks waiting to get back home or to work. There have been reports of looting in the city on top of the serious damage to the city via Hurricane Sandy.
Atlantic City’s neighbor to the south, Ventnor, is still closed. Check the city’s Facebook page for more information.
