Stay Home, Off Roads, Hillsborough Police Urge

Tuesday morning alert says numerous downed trees, poles and wires are making it hazardous, and many cases impossible, to get around.

Residents may now be experiencing the aftermath from Hurricane Sandy's landfall, but they are being strongly urged to stay off the roads on Tuesday.

The Hillsborough Police Department issued an alert through Nixle at 6:04 a.m. Tuesday telling township residents to stay home. The alert cited numerous downed trees, poles and wires, which have closed roads. 

As of 7 a.m. on Tuesday, most of the township was without power. PSE&G has the township outage number at greater than 10,000, while JCP&L reported 1,056 of its 1,060 costumers in Hillsborough without power.

Utility companies had said before the storm even hit that it could take up to 10 days to return power to all costumers. Lineworkers had been prevented from restoration efforts late Monday night and early Tuesday due to the high winds, which made it unsafe to go up in their bucket trucks. 

Hillsborough police say most traffic signals are not functioning, and intersections with non-functioning signals should be treated as four-way stops. However, the preference by authorities is that residents remain at home on Tuesday.

I think we're going to plump for http://www.outletcoachstoday.com the bigger one. It won't be the http://www.coachoutletod.com easiest to tow behind our push-bikes, http://www.coachs-outletcar.com particularly over Berlin's cobbles, but it will make http://www.coachoutletdp.com for swifter trips to interviews, http://www.coachoutletwo.com and it will save money for the licence-payer. http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com Berlin makes getting around http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net on two wheels a pleasure.I have cycled in London http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org but gave it up after too-many rants at a http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net white van. But in Berlin, it is a joy. Firstly, the city is http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com pretty flat, and secondly, there are endless cycle http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com tracks. Thirdly, everybody has a bike - so car-drivers are http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com probably also cyclists in their other lives and so keep http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org their eyes wide open.The test of whether cycling has really taken off in a city http://www.coachoutletrf.com is who does it. In New York, it is urban warriors, young men usually, who zip http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com aggressively between lanes.In London, it's a bit of that, but also, I suspect, http://www.coachoutletuser.net eco-zealots who are asserting their credentials - though the Boris bike scheme may be taking it more mainstream.In Berlin, it is the people.
