Monmouth County, NJ receives its earliest snow ever (in 127 years of record keeping)

Monmouth County snow
Each year we wonder just how bad our winter is going to be here at the Jersey Shore, and after nine months of 2020, it's hard to be optimistic about this upcoming winter.

For me, the thing I like least about the winter is worrying about snow and roadway conditions. Yes, we root for snow for the kids, but outside that, I don't really mind if the snow misses us altogether.

You may think it's a little early to be worried about snow, right? I mean, it's the first week of October. Not so fast. I did a little research on the earliest accumulating snow ever recorded in Monmouth County and the date will certainly surprise you.

Anyone who remembers the aftermath of Sandy knows that October snow has definitely happened relatively recently, but that was the end of the month. So how early in October has Monmouth County seen snow?

We checked with our friends at NOAA and the Center For Weather & Climate, and they dug deep to find the answer for us. They looked all the way back to 1893 in the official records, and they came up with the answer for us.

Chantal Bwanga, president of United Methodist Women in Uvira, Congo, was forced to climb onto a roof to escape the flooding.
Officials say 15 people were killed after torrential rains in eastern Congo.

"We are recording enormous damage; practically it is a disaster. We have just removed 15 bodies from these waters," North Kivu provincial official Roger Malinga said.

The rains on Thursday caused a river to overflow, explained Faustin Kasole, a civil society leader in the region, adding that one village had been entirely "wiped off the map."

He said he expected the death toll to be much larger, given that the search for bodies had taken place in the dark overnight and was continuing.
