 Post Hurricane Sandy Update from Hamilton Township – Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 1:30 PM

(Hamilton)– As of 1:30 PM on Tuesday, October 30th, Hamilton Township is conducting recovery responses to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Earlier this morning, media accounts estimated that upwards of 90,000 Mercer County residents were without power. As further information from Public Service Electric & Gas (PSE&G) becomes available, Hamilton will update that information on its website (www.HamiltonNJ.com) and its Facebook account.

Mayor Bencivengo and Hamilton’s Office of Emergency Management strongly urge residents to continue to exercise extreme caution in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, which officials are advising residents through its reverse phone call system. There are numerous hazards such as fallen trees, fallen /low electrical wires and power outages. All of the mentioned hazards are a danger to the motoring public.

Currently, township crews are attempting to remove fallen trees that have obstructed roads throughout the community. Crews will first attempt to clear the township’s primary roads – roads that accommodate the most number of motorists – and will then move to clear secondary and neighborhood roads. Additionally, township inspectors are responding to serious electrical and structural foundation damage issues.

Through the duration of Hurricane Sandy, township firefighters and emergency personnel responded to 132 calls for storm-related assistance, for matters included downed trees, wires and other hazards.

Although Township offices remained closed on Tuesday, the HamStat Call Center opened to assist residents with non-emergency matters after remaining open all evening/overnight on Monday.

Residents are encouraged to continue checking the Township website and Facebook account for further post-storm updates, as they become available.
