CLIFFVIEW PILOT VIDEO: If you haven’t taken warnings about the extreme dangers of power lines downed or damaged by the weekend snowstorm seriously, have a look at this video of an electrical box that first smolders, then flares — and then explodes, sending sparks flying.

Officials throughout North Jersey are urging caution during trick-or-treating today, with some even urging parents to keep their children home, just to be safe.

At the very least, they say, go with your children, be extremely vigilant and have them home before dark.

To be on the safe side, Glen Rock Police set a 5 p.m. curfew in town.

“The wires present significant dangers to anyone outside,” Wyckoff Police Chief Benjamin Fox warned. “First, we don’t even know where all of the wires are located. Many are located under the snow. Second, although many broken and down wires are now without power, as service is restored these lines will become charged and dangerous.”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Teaneck and Mahwah continue to be one of the areas hardest hit by the weekend snowstorm, and authorities throughout North Jersey are urging extreme caution if your children are trick-or-treating today. READ MORE….

“The possibility of accidental electrocution is very real following this storm,” Fox warned. “Trees or limbs should not be moved by anyone if wires are involved. Children should not be allowed to play outside unless an adult knows it is safe.”
