Photos of Mayor Dawn Zimmer and the National Guard
Hoboken resident and photographer Jean Paul Picard sent these photos in of Mayor Dawn Zimmer with the National Guard this Sunday in the aftermath of Hurricane Irene. One of the positives that came out of this storm was that organizations who might not normally work together (i.e. The National Guard and Hoboken) banded together to try to meet the basic needs of its citizens. The Mayor was a part of that and slept on a cot in City Hall on Saturday night. She seems a bit more relieved and relaxed in these photos then she was before the storm as the damage from Irene was less than forecasted. There were however residents in low lying areas in Hoboken who did sustain substantial flood damage but no serious injuries were reported. This storm could have been a lot worse but thankfully dissipated sooner than forecasts projected.
