Throughout Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath in Wyckoff, township officials kept in contact with PSE&G and Orange & Rockland, the borough website and a new OEM Facebook page to keep in contact with residents.
Oakland and Franklin Lakes used similar methods to keep in touch with an anachronistically isolated citizenry.
Throughout the storm, officials commended the work of emergency responders, and online resources such as the municipal web pages became integral tools for important updates on power outages, dry ice distributions, school closings and more.
Many Wyckoff and Franklin Lakes residents went without power for an extraordinary amount of time — up to 12 days for those in the most extreme cases — and many of the township's businesses lost a week or more worth of commerce.
Gas was in short supply, supermarkets were caught with bare shelves, and temperatures were dropping, as a result some expressed frustration with the official response; yet others still praised it.
