Electric power in New Brunswick has failed and water to the utility's customers now must be boiled. Read this alert for your safety.
The water is out in Woodbridge. Middlesex Water Company issued an alert that because of a power failure they've been fighting since last week at their New Brunwick electrical generating station, water supplies aren't being treated and will drop in quantity to water companies. Woodbridge residents began receiving Reverse 911 calls late this afternoon about the potential electrical failure. Bernadette Sohler, spokeswoman for the utility, said they were trying hard to keep the power supply up and keep the water flowing, but that the township-led calls to residents was premature and not authorized by the company.

The National Weather Service is still predicting up to 4 inches of snow for the township.
You might've thought Woodbridge dodged a bullet Friday with the light snowfall, but don't heave a sigh of relief yet. There is more on the way. The National Weather Service has put out a Winter Weather Advisory for Saturday through 10 pm. They are calling for 2 to 4 inches of the white stuff.
