Hang in there, #JerseyStrong…
The Hoboken water main break in our city’s southwest corner has caused flooding and brought both traffic and water pressure to a trickle.
Sunday Funday, however, is still on—with some adventurous bars remaining open, others going as far as to order their own port-o-potties.
Portojohns arrived!….11 minutes ahead of schedule!

Meanwhile, consider hunkering down, because over the next 24 hours Hoboken will have to live life by the drop…
From the City of Hoboken:
Crews have isolated the water main break in southwest Hoboken and water pressure is beginning to be restored through the north end interconnection.
A boil water advisory remains in effect until further notice.
Water restoration with limited pressure is expected within 2 hours to almost all of Hoboken.
Repairs to the water main will continue overnight. Full pressure restoration is expected by tomorrow. Water trucks will remain available until full service is restored.
There are numerous street closings in southwest Hoboken. Drivers are advised to exit through northern Hoboken today and tomorrow.[Sunday, November 22 at 3:16 p.m.]
