It began with the cancellation of the Marlboro Halloween Parade. Sandy wasn't stopping there, she's now responsible for thousands of children having empty trick-or-treating bags.
With a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew in Monmouth County, street closures and power outages, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik said he is ready to postpone trick-or-treating indefinitely.
"Due to the current state of emergency, we will be rescheduling Halloween to a time when our children will be safe and will be able to enjoy it fully," Hornik said.
On Tuesday night, Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden put a county-wide curfew in place. According to Golden, only essential personnel may be outside and on the roads during this time. This curfew includes emergency service personnel and those who are responsible for critical services within the county.
