Power could be out 1-3 weeks!

PSE&G: NJ could lose power for weeks from Hurricane Irene

Wow – a massive widespread & lengthy power outage?

Now this is a bit unsettling! Electric won’t be fully restored for one to three weeks says PSE&G:

“Our state has never before experienced a storm of this magnitude,” said Ralph LaRossa, PSE&G president and COO. “PSE&G will have about 6,000 employees supporting the restoration effort, including 840 linemen and 540 tree contractors available to respond to outages once the hurricane pulls away. While our electric system has been recognized as the most reliable in the nation, we expect significant damage from the extraordinary wind and rain expected to pummel New Jersey this weekend.

Full restoration could take between one and three weeks.”

Ed, did you buy Depends? I doubt buying some eggs, butter, bread and beer is being prepared, since you are so scared of the news put on the Depends make your French Toast and Drink your beer and pull the covers over your head when the Hurricane hits. If you literally crap in your pants when it hits because you did not evacuate you will be prepared.

hoboken411,

this is almost going to far. quit trying to scare people. we get that your site is getting alot of views during this time. but trying to tell people that they will be without power for 3 weeks (which wont happen). this is beyond ridiculous.

people need to prepare for the worst (which i have) but dont need to be scared of the extremes.

I think that means statewide, in all areas of outages, it could take that long to repair everything. It’s totally possible- but, just like politicians and other people with power over lots of people(literally)- these people are covering their butts so nobody can say “i told you so”. This is worst case scenario.
