I have relatives who live in a high rise in Fort Lee. Aside from that, there are seniors who live in these buildings too. I do not understand why these buildings are not a priority for the power companies to repair. Governor Christie needs to visit Fort Lee to assess the terrible conditions there. My brother's high rise doesn't even have enough gas for it's back up generator. Residents cannot even leave because there is NO GAS in Fort Lee. Although this was a natural disaster, it shows how ill-prepared our region, and Fort Lee, were prepared. Shame on Jersey Power & Light!
