What Ramsey Looks Like After Sandy

Officials are recommending residents stay home

Tuesday morning, Ramsey residents began assessing the damage left by Hurricane Sandy. With the majority of the borough out of power, most of the damage in the township was the result of wind and downed trees, not flooding.

Officials are asking residents to stay in place as rescue, fire, police and emergency response crews are working to clear the massive amount of debris left all over Ramsey streets as a result of the storm Monday.

"Unless your house is damaged or you are going to get the dry ice Ramsey OEM is advising all residents to stay home and "shelter in place" til further notice. Also please stay inside," the Ramsey Office of Emergency Management posted on its Facebook page.

The Ramsey Police Department echoed those sentiments on its Facebook page. "Many roads impassable due to trees and/or wires down. Please stay indoors. Emergency and utility crews are working."
