Atlantic City plans to maintain four shelters for residents who do not evacuate the coastal city because of Hurricane Sandy. Five more shelters will be available on the mainland for evacuees from the barrier islands.
"We want our residents to take every precaution to get out to town if they can," Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford said. "If they can't or won't, then at least go to a shelter."
Gov. Christie's evacuation order prompted the state's division of gaming enforcement to temporarily suspend casino operations as of 3 p.m. Sunday.
