City of Hoboken, NJ
Monday October 29th, 2012 :: 09:43 p.m. EDT



The City of Hoboken has experienced severe flooding in excess of the record set in 1821.

The city is working closely with PSE&G to resolve power outages. According to PSE&G the substations at Madison Street and Marshall Drive are flooded and need to be shut down. This will result in the loss of power to much of southern Hoboken.

Several wires are down and all should be considered live;
- 2nd Street and Madison Street
- 89 Adams Street
- 6th Street and Park Avenue
- First Street and Bloomfield Street

Residents should not approach any wires or touch anything touching the wires including water. Residents should stay out of flood waters, which are a mixture of sewage and rainwater and pose a health hazard. Strong windows have brought down multiple trees and flood waters have displaced man hole covers. It is very dangerous outside so residents are strongly urged to stay indoors. A mandatory curfew remains in effect until 1 p.m. Tuesday.
