City: MANDATORY GROUND FLOOR UNIT EVACUATION


RESIDENTS URGED TO PREPARE FOR HURRICANE 

There is a mandatory evacuation in effect for ground floor units in Hoboken. It doesn't mean you have to leave Hoboken, but if you have friends or family at a higher elevation, we're asking residents to be good neighbors and invite other neighbors to stay over. Also, the shelter at the Wallace School (11th and Willow) will be open at 8pm.

NJ warning: "basically the worst-case scenario coming true”

As of 3:00 PM Sunday, one meteorologist put the terms of the hurricane heading to land in NJ this way:

“It’s basically the worst-case scenario coming true,” said Gary Szatkowski, the meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service’s Mount Holly office.

Mayor Zimmer will be issuing additional information on the approaching storm.  Stay tuned and share information and aid with your neighbors.

The calm before the storm is the last opportunity to make preparations.  

Talking Ed Note: Typically, hurricanes travel up inland on the East Coast but we are going to witness something not seen in our lifetime: a Category 1 hurricane landing in New Jersey itself.

The force of a hurricane is typically weakened by moving over land but this storm is combining with cold air pressure increasing its strength and with it the opportunity for coastal flooding far worse than we've seen.

You need to prepare for the worst.

Da Horsey strongly suggests you tell your friends and neighbors to talk all precautions with several days of food and water at a minimum and fill pots, pans and tubs with water for sanitation needs.  A toilet can be flushed with the water even with power being out.

Take the steps today because you won't have an option if electricity goes down for any extended period later.  It's absolutely likely to occur in NJ with the size of the storm coming ashore here.

UPDATE: THE COASTAL FLOODING PROMISES TO BE VERY BAD.  

If you are in downtown Hoboken, you will see water surges coming in heavy.

Hobroken in peril but not to worry, the Nazi truck will Move Forward to safe ground


Many of you are worried about me with the coming hurricane but I can assure you where I'm currently situated which may be in Italy or in a conference room with lawyers discussing existing or future lawsuits against citizen websites and residents telling the truth about me, I am both warm and dry.

My devout husband Wickedly and I have taken steps to ensure our safety since that terrible act of God some years back where the guy upstairs we're not on good terms with sent a lightning bolt striking our home.  So you need not worry about us and I trust this will give you comfort as we've contracted with the other guy downstairs below Wickedly's wine cellar.  Go Team Beelzebub and let's Move Forward!

Our preparations to destroy Hobroken has been stymied by this horrid mayor who insisted on blocking a planned bankruptcy and saving 1,000 jobs with that dumb hospital we don't even need, but this hurricane will not finish the job I was elected by those of you in service to evil to do.  This I promise you from the bottom of my shrunken black heart.  Yes, there's a small bit of dead flesh left there but like those council members in my way, I'm diligently working to excise all of them once and for all. You could be next and Wickely is reviewing my lawsuit allowance as we speak.

I'm proud to announce after another set of successful negotiations for page three ads with the Hudson Distorter, I will be continuing to provide the Muve Farward campaign additional thousands in support with my political operatives, in-kind hammer and nails, and of course all the top-flite professional services that go into making the best short videos depicting me and the souls I own on behalf of the netherworld as victims.  I'd like to give a special shout out to Sperry Klauzen who continues to show his love for me above all.  Congratulations to both you and Oskey for licking my crap trodden boot clean.

These are all very successful developments for the city and I know many of you can't wait until the Nazi truck returns for a fifth showing next week.  The feedback from all of you has been tremendous. My cameraman Jim has provided great footage for our next video where we will be taking on the mayor and Gov. Christie who continues to hold that job without my expressed authorization.

Some will say Gov. Christie was elected by the citizens but I did not approve of that law installing him nor sanctify with evil those laws keeping me from wielding absolute power over all of you here and beyond.  I will continue my brave fight in the face of these laws posed against me and my absolute power.

Stay tuned as my political operatives will be providing important anonymous babbling to Sal Gullible at the Hudson Distorter how a media savvy person like me will not be making any statements on the FBI investigation of emails I don't know how arrived on my home computer.  Unless there's proof I personally emailed the stolen data from the mayor's office to myself, I'm going to say I'm innocent.

If that guy Saul in Newark has any brains, he'll stay away from me.  If he doesn't I'll sue him too.

This is an emergency communication of the Bet Mazin Nazi swastika truck team.  Had this been our actual Nazi truck flying in the air during a hurricane, you would be given notice of where it's flying and how to avoid being hit with either the vehicle or one of my lawsuits.  Disclaimer: N/A to any of you Zimmerists or worshippers of the guy due north above our heads.  I'll sue you all?

P.S. We are suspending BoE campaign operations as we move the Nazi swastika truck to higher ground.  A new video production team is however continuing with our newest episode.  Once the Nazi truck's safety is confirmed the production team will load my approved video and Jose Blanco will confirm the rental with movie showings all around town.

The Hudson Distorter will keep you informed along with that dead carcass at Hobroken411.

City: Make your preparations for Hurricane on Sunday

City of Hoboken announces:


RESIDENTS URGED TO MAKE FINAL PREPARATIONS FOR HURRICANE SANDY

At this time, the National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Warning, High Wind Warning, and Flood Watch for our area. Major flooding and winds up to 80mph are possible. Residents should take the storm very seriously and finish all preparations by Sunday.

Information related to Hurricane Sandy and other important relevant resources are available on the City website atwww.hobokennj.org/sandy.

Evacuation
Although a mandatory evacuation has not been ordered, residents who live in ground floor units and in low-lying areas of the City, including those who flooded during Hurricane Irene, may wish to voluntarily evacuate due to the potential for flooding. For those who wish to but cannot evacuate, a shelter will be available.

Shelter
The City will be opening a shelter at the Wallace School, located at 1100 Willow Avenue. The exact time will be announced later today. Residents going to the shelter may bring medication, a small toiletry bag, clothing for up to 3 days, and 3 days of baby supplies including diapers and formula. Pets are permitted and must be crated. Please bring enough pet food for three days. Residents who wish to donate non-perishable food for the shelter may drop off items at City Hall.

Emergency Operations Center
An Emergency Operations Center will be open 24/7 as of 1:00pm on Sunday, October 28 and staffed by City staff and CERT volunteers. Please call our Emergency Operations Center at 201-239-6644/6645/6647/6648 if you have general questions, in order to alleviate the strain on our public safety officials. For emergencies, residents should call 911 or the Hoboken Police Department at 201-420-2100 and Hoboken Fire Department at 201-420-2005/2007.

High Wind Warning
A high wind warning is in effect from Monday 6am until Tuesday 6pm. Sustained winds of 35-55mph and gusts of 70-80mph are predicted. Residents and businesses should bring in unsecured objects from patios and balconies and secure outdoor objects such as lawn furniture which can blow away and cause injury. Please bring garbage cans inside so they do not litter our streets, and if you have a construction zone, please clear and secure the site of all loose materials. The City has brought inside all public trash cans that are not bolted down. Residents are also asked to help clear leaves from sidewalks to avoid catch basins from clogging during the storm.

Garbage Pickup
Regular garbage pickup will occur on Sunday night. Please promptly bring trash bins indoors after pickup has occurred.

Parking Information
Cars parked on-street should be moved out of flood-prone areas (see map: www.hobokennj.org/departments/environmental-services/storm-flood-zones). Due to the potential for flooding, the City of Hoboken is providing discounted parking at the rate of $5 per day in municipal Garage B (located on 2nd Street between Hudson and River streets) beginning Sunday, October 28th at 8pm through Tuesday, October 30th at 8pm for residents who reside in flood prone areas and have a valid Resident parking permit or Temporary parking permit placard. Parking before or beyond this time will be charged at the normal rate. Space is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Residents may also consider parking in private lots or moving vehicles out of town.

Flooding
Please avoid any flooded or barricaded streets. Like many older cities, Hoboken has a combined sewer system, so flood water is a mix of sewage and rain water runoff and poses a health hazard. Man hole covers may also have been displaced, posing a serious threat for pedestrians and drivers. Downed power lines in the water pose an electrocution hazard.

Be prepared
PSE&G has warned that up to 1 million of its 2.2 million customers could experience a power outage, and full restoration could take more than 7 days. For your safety and to ensure that our Police and Fire Departments can respond to all emergencies, it is very important that everyone is fully prepared to stay inside with enough water and food for 72 hours. Assume there will be no power and make certain to have flashlights, and batteries. Charge phones, fill bathtubs and sinks with water, which can be used to flush toilets, and turn refrigerators to the coldest setting and keep them closed. 

Schools, Parks & Recreation
Hoboken Public Schools will be closed on Monday, October 29, 2012. Updates will be posted to the Board of Education website:www.hoboken.k12.nj.us and the City’s website. All City parks and playgrounds will be closed at 3pm on Sunday, October 28, 2012 due to wind. All sports league practices scheduled for Monday are cancelled.

Public Transportation
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will begin shutting down subway, commuter rail and bus service at 7pm on Sunday, October 28, 2012. All PATH train service and stations will be shutdown at 12:01am Monday, October 29 until further notice. NJ TRANSIT will offer full systemwide cross-honoring starting at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, October 29 and continuing through 6 a.m. Wednesday, October 31.

Government Offices
All City of Hoboken government buildings will be open on Monday, October 29, 2012.

Councilman Bhalla praises efforts registering 750 new voters

From the desk of Councilman Ravi Bhalla


Hoboken Votes Registers 750 Voters, Turns Focus to Voter Education

Hoboken Votes, an initiative to register Hoboken residents to vote and educate residents about local issues, is pleased to announce it has registered over 750 new voters as a result of its volunteer efforts this summer and fall.  The vast majority of these newly registered voters are Hoboken residents, with a small portion from neighboring municipalities, primarily Union City and Jersey City.

“I want to thank our core volunteers for the time they spent on the streets, in the parks, and in the waterfront buildings, registering people to vote and educating them about local issues,” said Councilman Ravi Bhalla, who led the effort.  “We were able to register a substantial number of new voters along the waterfront buildings, and in particular would like to thank the management and residents at the Hudson Tea Buildings, Maxwell Place, Shipyard and Sky Club for their interest and enthusiasm.”

“This non-partisan effort provided us an opportunity to engage hundreds of new residents and inform them that the Presidential election is not the only issue on the ballot, but there are also important local issues where voters  will have a big impact,” said Phil Cohen, another volunteer organizer.  “We met hundreds of new voters who were interested in learning about electoral reform in Hoboken and the other local issues facing our community that will be on the ballot November 6.  These new voters want their voices to be heard.” Now that the registration deadline has passed, Hoboken Votes will focus its efforts on voter education about the Hoboken school board election and the Hoboken Public Questions, directly engaging the hundreds of newly registered voters as well as the public at large.
