Multiple areas report electrical lines down

9:00 Hurricane Irene watch:

Hoboken has electrical lines down in the following locations: 6th and Jefferson, 5th and Grand, the 700 area of Park, 800 Madison.

The PSE&G Marshall Street substation is down cutting power off to 8,800 residents in Hoboken.  Most of Jersey City is now without power as its substation had to be turned off for repairs.

The impact of the storm is not over.  The eye is south of Hoboken near Edison, New Jersey.  Severe winds will follow until late this morning putting additional electrical lines at risk.

Stay off the streets!

Da Horsey says it ain’t safe out there.  Stay indoors.
