PERTH AMBOY— The city’s State of Emergency has been lifted and the Department of Public Works is making their rounds throughout Perth Amboy to clean up tree limbs and other debris on public property.
“I want to thank everyone for their cooperation and those involved in the preparation of Hurricane Irene. The Office of Emergency Management, Public Safety, Public Works, Raritan Bay Medical Center, Raritan Bay YMCA, Human Services Staff, the Board of Education, and many others worked accordingly to handle shelter operations and storm planning,” said Mayor Wilda Diaz.
“Though this tropical storm was expected to be more damaging, thankfully it was not! Perth Amboy experienced minor flooding, power outages, and several downed trees and wires,” the mayor said. “I thank the residents of Perth Amboy for their cooperation and response in preparing for this storm and for adhering to our requests in parking and curfew orders.”
“I hope you all fared well with the storm and that all is well with you and your families. Enjoy the rest of your summer, as our children prepare for back to school. Be safe,” Diaz concluded.
