Mayor expresses thanks to community efforts through storm

Office of the Mayor announces:

MAYOR ZIMMER THANKS COMMUNITY FOR RESPONSE TO IRENE
“I want to say thank you to everyone,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “While the flooding was not as severe as we had expected, this was a major storm, and everyone worked together to ensure that no one was seriously hurt in Hoboken. Most importantly, I thank the community for heeding the calls to evacuate, going to shelters, being prepared, and moving thousands of cars off the street. By being proactive together as a community, we helped protect the lives of residents.”

“The flooding is over, the state of emergency has been lifted, power has been restored almost everywhere and the cleanup effort will continue this week,” added Mayor Zimmer. “Over the next few days and weeks, we will be providing updates on the cleanup effort and the potential for assistance from FEMA. As a community, we worked together to weather a very significant storm, and there are so many people who deserve our thanks and recognition for their efforts including the Hoboken Police and Fire Departments, Office of Emergency Management, the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Environmental Services, Parking Utility, my directors and staff, Stevens Institute of Technology and Stevens volunteers, Hoboken University Medical Center, North Hudson Sewerage Authority, PSE&G, Red Cross, Senator Stack and his OEM/CERT, Mayors Gonnelli, Turner and Roque, Hudson County, the State of New Jersey, Governor Christie and his team, and the NJ National Guard for all that they have done.”
