Mayor Zimmer: PSE&G says 7 - 10 days for power restoration




PSE&G says 7 - 10 days for power restoration, according to Mayor Zimmer.
Tells Hoboken, "we're going to get through this."

Talking Ed Note: Unfortunately, MSV lost its story in preparation.  We're posting the unedited video. There is some interference among a great amount of media present.  Advance the video a little when it occurs and it clears up.

There's been bad rumors being spread.  First, that there's something wrong with the water.  Untrue.
Also, that Mayor Zimmer shut the power off on Washington and the City.  That's incorrect.  PSE&G is in charge of the power and shut down when things got rough with the storm.  Two of the transformers in town are inundated with water and must dry before repairs.  PSE&G will be in charge of that process.

MSV will be back with more but an application crash ate our story.  Da Horsey like Hoboken will be back.

Hoboken needs supplies: blankets, bottled water and non-perishable supplies delivered to the high school at Clinton and 8th Street.  Tell any law enforcement you are delivering emergency supplies.

Volunteers are still needed to aid in the massive human support endeavor underway.  Please go upstairs to Hoboken City Hall at 94 Washington Street.

Hoboken Public Safety has been magnificent and is working with the National Guard.  Tip of the hat to Public Safety Director Jon Tooke, Chief Falco, the Hoboken Fire Department and OEM along with everyone who is contributing to the effort.  Thank you so very much!
