In the aftermath of Sandy, Fort Lee found its streets littered with downed trees, wires and telephone poles. From the Junction at the base of Abbot Boulevard north to Coytesville, large large portions of the town are without power. PSE&G's outage map estimates that more than 10,000 households are without power in Fort Lee as of Tuesday.
Mayor Mark Sokolich issued a State of Emergency for Fort Lee Tuesday declaring an immediate pedestrian curfew between 6pm to 6am and suspending all Halloween activities for Wednesday. Police are authorized to close any roadway at their discretion if they deem it unsafe and residents are being asked to conserve water. Also, all garbage collection is suspended until further notice.
Patch will provide more information as it becomes available.
