Priscilla Niemiera has a message for officials at the Long Island Power Authority. "I'd tell them, get off your rear end and do your job," the 68-year-old Seaford resident said. Well, she would if she could get in touch with anyone.
Two weeks after Superstorm Sandy socked the region, cleanup continues in New York and New Jersey, which bore the brunt of the destruction. But the storm didn't just bring darkness and despair; it also brought the gawkers.
More than 70,000 customers of Long Island Power Authority in New York were without electricity Monday, two weeks after Superstorm Sandy struck, and the often-criticized government entity mostly blamed factors beyond its control.
Hervey said the company will be working with remaining customers over the next several weeks as they get their homes repaired.
"They can't be safely re-energized from an electrical standpoint," he said. "We are ready to service those areas, but they are not ready to take it right now."
