UPDATE: Power outage in northern Hoboken

×

According to an email alert from Hoboken, Northern Hoboken is in the midst of a power outage.

The Office of Emergency Management reported a transformer issue at 15th and Garden Streets which has resulted in a loss of power in regions north of 11th Street.

Although a previous alert stated Elysian Charter School had been temporarily evacuated to Harborside Park, and Wallace Elementary School had been temporarily evacuated to Hoboken High School, a second alert from the city said the evacuation was not necessary because both schools’ backup generators are functioning.

Residents are asked to avoid entering or exiting Hoboken from the north.
