An Amazon delivery facility previously planned for Galloway in Atlantic County has reportedly been scrapped.

Referred to as a 'last mile' delivery center, Amazon had its sights set on a plot of land in Galloway on Aloe Street at Genoa Avenue, potentially bringing more jobs to the area.

But Amazon has pulled out of the deal with Ole Hansen & Sons (out of nearby Cologne), who owns the location in Galloway they had hoped to build on, Press of Atlantic City reports.

While there's been no official statement from Amazon explaining why the change of heart, Ole Hansen surmises a national economic downturn could be to blame.

But, Ole Hansen tells Press of AC they are entertaining other proposals that could still bring another business to the corner of Aloe & Genoa. Time will tell.

For now, though, if you live in the Jimmie Leeds Rd. area of Galloway, you won't be seeing any EXTRA Amazon trucks whizzing down the road.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
