Weekly “Sandy” Recap for Hoboken, NJ – November 4, 2012
Looks like pretty much every story in the past week had something to do with Hurricane Sandy!
Here’s what happened in the past week.
Hurricane Sandy disrupts Hoboken, NJ – far from over!
- Hoboken Power Outages and Hoboken Flooding – Sums up our last week.
- Mayoral Fail? – Many Hoboken residents feel that the situation was handled poorly by our jittery Mayor Dawn Zimmer.
- Should there have been more evacuations? – We were talking about the storm and the likely flooding days before hand – why the late warnings from so-called “officials?”

Today in History
