New Milford Recovers From Sandy
With the majority of town still without power, and most businesses closed, New Milford is trying to get back to normal.
Less than 48 hours since Sandy came barreling into Bergen County, taking down hundred-year old trees, wires, telephone and light poles, New Milford is trying to recover from the devastation.
"Being without power for so long is the hardest thing to deal with," one resident of Graphic Street said. "Especially having no internet. I feel so disconnected from everything that's going on in the world."
All of the businesses on Main Street remained closed Wednesday due to lack of power, as did CVS, Shop Rite, Dunkin' Donuts and both 7-Elevens.
The DPW was out in full force and the majority of borough streets that were closed due to downed trees and debris Tuesday were cleared by Wednesday.
PSE&G could be seen all throughout town working on restoring power in the town.
Patch will continue to report the power outage situation in New Milford and provide updates on when businesses are expected to re-open.
