And then there was light! First and Willow reported to power up!

Mayor Zimmer at press conference earlier today said restoring power will not take 7-10 days

A twitter post just brought the best news anyone in Hoboken could have hoped for when the announcement came in First and Willow has come back online.  The estimates to get power up across town was said to be in the range of seven to ten days.

The post retweeted by said:

Talking Ed Note: This report is unconfirmed but MSV is going to run with it anyway.

Update: The mayor has weighed in just now via twitter:

The Hoboken Police are noting lights coming on downtown near the train station and Observer.  Also, an unconfirmed report sections of Garden Street and upper Washington also powered up!

Those indicators may be premature for upper Garden and Washington.  But the buzz has started.

Councilwoman Jen Giattino in a random street crossing said Sixth Street.  Looks like through Willow.

Some lights in the fourth ward have returned.  Credit: Amardeep Singh
