MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Government offices will remain closed today, Friday, April 5, 2024, as a result of this morning’s earthquake.

The County of Morris Administration and Records Building on Court Street in Morristown was evacuated immediately after the earthquake because of a report of a possible gas leak. No leak was found and the facility was eventually deemed safe; however, a precautionary step was taken to close all county offices to allow Engineering and Buildings and Grounds staff to conduct safety inspections of all county facilities.

Those inspections are still ongoing.

Currently, the Morris County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has not received any reports of significant widespread damage or injuries. The Red Cross has set up resources should the county find that anyone is in need of housing and shelter.

Local emergency authorities have been asked by OEM to check on senior communities, nursing homes, hospitals, and other critical facilities to determine whether any emergency resources are required.
