SEPTA has released a guide in the event of a service interruption due to a strike by union transit workers. On Sunday, 10/24, the Transit Workers Union Local 234 unanimously voted to authorize a strike if a deal for a new contract could not be reached. The current contract expires on October 31. A strike could happen as early as Monday, 11/1. TWU Local 234 represents 5,000 workers. Both sides will continue to negotiate to reach a deal this week. The union is looking for better wages, maternity leave, assistance to families of workers who died for COVID-19, and safer working conditions. The strike only affects city transit such as buses, trolleys, and subways. It does not affect Regional Rail or suburban buses. See the guide for more details and to plan for a possible disruption of services starting next week.

An 18-year-old man is accused of a double shooting in Browns Mills, Pemberton Township, that killed one teen and injured another on October 18. Kai Johnson is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree attempted murder, first-degree aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, and other crimes. Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina and Pemberton Township Police Chief David King announced the charges on Monday. Johnson had turned himself in on Friday, 10/22. It happened around 11:35 p.m. on the 100 block of Snow Avenue. Johnson and 17-year-old Malachi Treherne were having an argument. Johnson pulled out a gun and shot Treherne twice in the head. He also shot a 17-year-old girl at least once in the chest. She was taken to to Capital Health Regional Medical Center in Trenton. She has since been released. There were other people in the house at the time, including a 2-year-old, but no one else was injured. Johnson is being held at Burlington County Jail in Mount Holly. The case will be presented to a grand jury for possible indictment.

A Nor'easter will be affecting the region starting Monday night, 10/25, around 8 p.m. through Tuesday evening. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire Philadelphia area through Tuesday with 2-4” of rain expected. Strong thunderstorms are likely Monday night and gusty winds will last through Tuesday. Winds will be higher down the shore.
