Thousands of Hobokenites Remain Without Power

Mayor Dawn Zimmer estimated that about 15 percent of Hobokenites remained without power on Tuesday night.

a few thousand people in Hoboken remained in the dark on Tuesday night for the tenth straight night.

The substations were powered up as of Monday night. Some buildings in Hoboken, however — roughly 50 buildings — were still unable to receive power. Hoboken's three substations all suffered damage during Superstorm Sandy. The salt water that flooded the stations also caused major corrosion.

The power problems could be originated in the building itself, or it could be a problem with the wires to the building.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer said she has been pushing PSE&G as well as the Department of Energy for help on those last buildings in town.

The fact that thousands of Hobokenites still have no power, Zimmer said on Tuesday night, "is killing me." A team of engineers is being sent by the Department of Energy this week to trouble shoot and fix the last problems, Zimmer said.

Some representatives from the National Guard remain in Hoboken through Wednesday's predicted nor'easter, Zimmer said.

For those still without power, the city has set up a utility hotline. Residents can call 214-561-0671, 0672, 0674 or 0675 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

I've been staying with relatives in NYC since last Tuesday, and don't know how I can tell if power has been restored to my building. Is there any way to find out which - at least, with approximation - buildings still have no power?

Statistics say you already have power, but you can call PSEG to confirm your address: Residential Customers: 1 800-436-7734 Business Customers: 1-855-249-7734 Current Hoboken outages sound like they are sporadic, so if the city was to give you a block or street address with power, that info may not be accurate.

But wait, didn't Zimmer say on Monday night that power had been restored to all of Hoboken? That was the headline on Patch: http://hoboken.patch.com/articles/power-restored-in-all-of-hoboken Shameless lie, just so she could get on TV again.

Power has been restored to Hoboken but individual buildings might be having problems if a line was downed in the storm. . Seriously are you stupid or just hoping everyone else is?
