For those with power and gas issues...

From the City of Hoboken Facebook page:

If you are without power and/or gas, your home or business may not be able to accept the service, and until it is certified as safe, PSE&G will not restore service. If you still do not have power, or if PSE&G has red tagged your home and shut off gas, please follow this process:

1. Call a licensed electrician (power) or plumber (gas) – below is a list of contractors that have worked with our office that you may want to consider contacting if you do not already have a contractor.

2. After they complete an inspection and make any necessary repairs, they will let our construction office know (201-420-2066), who will then let PSE&G know to restore power or gas. The contractors on the list are all familiar with the process and our construction office. Due to the emergency nature of the situation, we have cut the red tape and paperwork typically involved in this process to make sure power and gas can be restored as quickly as possible.
