Power restored in some areas
Even though rain is coming down hard at this moment.. the power was restored much sooner than anticipated in areas of town…
So for those interested in attending the SW6 Fall Fest (over at Goldhawk) – head on over now!!

Transformers & Power outages
Listen to the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action channel – transformers are blowing up around town – and sporadic temporary power surges & outages!!
OK – so the prolonged period of rain didn’t quite propagate as far east as weather forecasters predicted, however Hoboken is sure is windy! And we do expect to get some moderate rain before the cold front passes us…
Imagine how the moon walk might have blown away if they didn’t re-schedule the Harvest Festival?
