Water Main Break – 5th & Jefferson
Massive Water Main Break in Hoboken, NJ at 5th & Jefferson
Shortly after 2am tonight, Hoboken Police reported a giant water main break near 5th Street and Jefferson Street.
This apparently is a “above average” water main break in Hoboken, because water is either off or with very low pressure throughout the city. Additionally, cars are being moved and buildings evacuated due to basement flooding. Imagine? Basement flooding on the clearest, nicest day of the summer so far. Can’t blame Hurricane Sandy for this nonsense. Perhaps we can blame the aging infrastructure, out-of-control development and inept administration? Meanwhile, your Mayor is probably completely drunk and passed out at the moment.
The Hoboken police and fire department are on the ball – and doing a great job clearing the area and notifying residents of any impending dangers. United Water is expected to be on scene within 30 minutes.
