the worst of storms. but first, let's start with nate rogers. nate, what happened? how are people doing? nate: well, bill, it was hectic weekend for the area for many residents after pri dy's nor'easter storm. take ac willing at. this is what roads look like in morris county three days later. uprooted trees talking over the front lawns and roads blocked after trees toppled power lines, also, power lines now grounded right in front of homes. >> the winds were over 60 miles per hour. we were worried about the pipes freezing and trees coming down around us. >> two have a lot of trees in the area. also, the crews working to restore power. here many families are now arelying on generators. relying on generator. 221,000 power outages in new jersey alone. >> we have a lot of wires on the
3:03 am
ground so they are working with us to prioritize the issues. the wires are down. they could get covered so we try to lob. >> families are also on guard for another potential storm tomorrow evening into wednesday. and once this stuff starts, staying home, staying off the roads and a lot easier to get to get things done. >> go stay with a friend or have a generator or be grateful this can happen very often. >> some 2,000 crews working around the clock to restore service. i am nate rogers for "chasing news" now here is dan zarrow the latest weather for us. dan. thank you, nate. storm tracks are like railroad tracks. you get one locomotive nor'easter blog through. is not that surprising when there is one behind it. that is what we have in the
3:04 am
forecast. for wednesday of this week. going to get messy and within try once again. here is what we know so far. snow seems to be more and more lockley as time guess on from new york city down to new jersey turnpike four to eight inches even more than that. double-digit snowfall on the tables to the northwest and along the coast, is going to be tricky because we go from rain to snow at some point then the exact crack in temperatures will dictate how much snow we seek. now i know what else you are thinking. the wind and the coastal flooding threat. the good news is less than what we saw from fry did's nor'easter but still wind gusts of maybe 4 miles per hour inland and 50 miles per hour listening the coast and the worst-case scenario. bill? bill: thank you, dan. a guest bo knows a little bit about how to help us keep the light on during the next storm. he has some ideas the name is adam and with green irbe design.
3:05 am
welcome to "chasing news." adam, are pushing this idea called microgrid and i understand there is an example of this a ath princeton university. the question is. how do the rest of us pay for this? >> how do we pay for the things. i think it begins with a question of business as up, right? what are we paying for today? when we talk about the continued exposure of wires and lines and the continued rebuilding of the things, you know, we are talking about billions of dollars and expenses. all right. let me ask you. why not have this house by house. i know a lot of people with whole house generators myself included operating off of natural gas. we got the structure in blase more than 7% of homes in a place like new jersey already connected to the natural gas bridge. well, it is expensive, right it? begins and think of it like cop-cation. right? the beginning very expensive cell phones were for limited subset of people or communication and emergencies over time and this will grow just like telecommunication
3:06 am
cable has green over times and the house, the choices are limited to thual till utility allow that to be much more competitive and a much more rekrillient system. thank you, adam. let's bring in the a plus panel to talk about it to see what they think. immigration attorney is back with us and good see you. >> bill caruso, democratic range is here. ged sue. and pert brown. phil, want to start with you on this. it seems to me, two df ren things. you got lines down. as of monday morning. 73,000 people in new jersey were still out of power from the storm on friday. so clearly, something needs to be done. this is separate from the power lines. this is about their own communities like princeton university that has not run on gas them how ract call is that how expensive it would be to convert what you have. forget new projects. >> i think converting is a program. microgrids are interesting ideas but they are focused redevelop the idea of hardening power
3:07 am
delivery system makes a lot of sense t. that he is something that could be retrofitted and a new development is going getting down. the poll poles down. why are we petting up new poles they should be bar rid along the side of this road. that's something that town and counties can be doing. that cost money. well, prac call not ract call. microgrid. i have a gas generator that runs my house. so the power went onfully day. it just switches to a different box. you don't notice it. why is not every howhouse on it? individual housing grid? >> a great idea. the question is: who is going to pay for it. blit is grant money you are getting. municipality fays for a part of it. is going to cost money. where are we going get that money from? >> well, you spend so much time talking about the what if and these fantasies throughout and a nice idea that the rest of the world can catch up with princeton university with hundreds of approximatelies of extra dollars not ract call though. >> yeah. it does seem like utopian
3:08 am
society that is pritting on the own grid system. some don't into the city's grid p. we should focus on barring the power lines and peoplee in danger on friday that needs to be focus. did anyone lose power in the storm that none of you? >> i am the only one if pew the only one. >> you the one the generator. how about that all right. >> it usually doesn't work that way. thanks, guys. >> seems like the at thes to schools have been coming in increasing numbers lately especially in our area. on monday. officials made the decision to close bayonne schools because of a threat on twitter i will read this to you. watch it. we will shootup all bay jone public schools starting with henry harris to john m.d. to mid town community school then you dhs bayonne high school, monday morning and. i will bring in the mayor of bayonne, mayor joins you me now. mayor dave race, how you? welcome to "chasing news."

3:10 am
>> clearly you are taking this as legitimate threat inwhat do you do tomorrow? why are bayonne's schools in terms tef rush to secure the soft targets? you have armed guards. what preparations are you taking into well, yes. we instituted into the school district. right now what we are going to do is retired police officers who retire within the last five years and have to have armed resources and police officers in every single school, the high school. >> so what do you to do home? let's say the investigation continues into tomorrow. do you coop the schools closed? do you have enough confidence you got to be secure enough for the kids to attend schools safe. >> i am of dent and i am not just confident because i am the
