ConEd: 98 Percent Power Restoration

NYC is back up and running ... almost. Con Edison, which supplies power to the city and Westchester County, said on Saturday that 98 percent of homes that lost power during Hurricane Sandy and the more recent nor'easter have their lights back on. But that means about 20,000 customers are still waiting. The 98 percent figure also does not include the 35,000 in Staten Island, Brooklyn, or Queens whose homes are damaged to the point of not being able to accept power right now. On Long Island, LIPA is struggling to restore power for about 160,000 of their customers, still without power 10 days after Sandy.
