City of Hoboken announces:

Flood Warning and High Wind Advisory for City of Hoboken

Free Parking for Residents Residing in Flood Prone Areas
As a result of the weather forecast for heavy rain in our area and potential flooding, the City of Hoboken is providing free parking in a municipal garage this Saturday, March 13th beginning at 8 p.m. until Sunday, March 14th at 8 a.m. Residents who reside in flood prone areas with a valid residency parking permit will be able to park in Garage B (located on 2nd Street between Hudson and River streets).   


Wind Advisory
High winds and heavy rain are expected in Hoboken this Saturday, March 13th. Be sure your property (including construction sites) is secure.

Bring in unsecured objects from patios and balconies and secure outdoor objects such as lawn furniture or garbage cans that could blow away and cause damage or injury.

The safest place to be during high winds is indoors. If at all possible postpone outdoor activities during a wind advisory or high wind warning.

Watch for flying debris. Tree limbs may break and street signs may become loose during strong wind gusts. Keep an eye toward nearby balconies for loose objects that may fall.
Report downed lines to 201-420-2007 (Hoboken Fire Department) or 911 for assistance. Do not try to free lines or to remove debris yourself.
Avoid anything that may be touching downed lines, including vehicles or tree branches. Puddles and even wet or snow-covered ground can conduct electricity in some cases. Warn others to stay away.
