Alert: MANDATORY CURFEW EXTENDED UNTIL 6PM
There are reports of multiple live wires down throughout the City, and PSE&G cannot get into Hoboken to confirm that they are de-energized. Manhole covers have been displaced and pose a serious threat to pedestrians and cars on flooded and non-flooded streets. Flooding in the city remains widespread.
"We will make it through this together," said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. "All our emergency personnel and volunteers have been working so hard under the most extreme circumstances to keep our community safe, and I thank our community for cooperating and being understanding. For now, we need everyone to stay off the streets and to check in on their neighbors, especially the elderly and disabled."
According to United Water, the drinking water is safe. Due to major technical communications difficulties, only one phone line remains operational in the Emergency Operations Center: 201-239-6646. We are working to establish additional lines which will be announced as soon as possible.
