Hi Horsey,

Residents are very strongly urged to completely stay off streets. Live electrical wires are down in flooded areas and electrocution is possible. Do not walk your dogs.

Especially dangerous conditions exist along the waterfront, where the high tide and storm surge may cause the Hudson River to rise over the walkway.

According to PSE&G, an estimated 8,800 Hoboken residents will soon lose power. We urge residents to charge phones, fill bathtub, sinks, and pots with water. Turn refrigerators to the coldest setting and keep them closed.

Phone lines in the Fire Department are currently down and not operational. For emergencies, call 911. For information and less urgent matters, please call the Emergency Operations Center at 201-239-6643/6644. Fire Department communications should be restored shortly. An update will be provided. Visit for updates.For full details, view this message on the web.
