[ARCHIVED] A Statement on Tropical Storm Isaias

Township of Hanover

Today, several members of the Township Committee toured neighborhoods of our community to assess the damage inflicted by Tropical Storm Isaias. To say the least, damage to personal property is significant as a result of uprooted trees and fallen tree limbs and branches. The Township’s police, fire and public works departments in coordination with our Office of Emergency Management are working together as a unified team in resolving storm issues.

The DPW has begun the clean-up of vegetative debris including several uprooted trees that pose a danger to the public. If you have fallen tree limbs or branches, please place them in neat piles along the curb for pick-up. If possible, large limbs and branches should be cut into manageable bundles. Please be considerate bt helping our employees help you.

Currently, 1479 JCP&L customers are without power in Hanover. JCP&L crews and its private contractors are working to restore power to those affected by the storm. Similarly, Altice’s cable, Internet, and phone services have been disrupted affecting many residents town-wide. The Township has spoken with the Altice government affairs representative who indicated that a statement on the status of repairs will be issued soon. Once we have that statement, we will publish it on our website.

If you have a neighbor who is sick or elderly, please check to determine if they need any assistance. We are a close-knit community striving to help one another in good times or bad.

Although short in duration, the impact of the storm left an indelible mark on Hanover and many surrounding towns. However, as we have done in the past with other crises, we will endure!
